SKY Sports seem reasonably confident that Liverpool will wrap up the £3.5 million signing of Fulham left-back Paul Konchesky later today, after the defender reportedly signalled his intentions to join former boss Roy Hodgson at Anfield to new manager Mark Hughes.

Hodgson has publicly stated that he is keen to address the imbalance in the Liverpool defensive ranks, but it was thought that PSV’s Mexican full-back Carlos Salcido was top of his transfer wish-list.

However, it now seems that the Liverpool chief is set to raid his old club for the 29-year-old Konchesky, whom he rates very highly having worked alongside the defender for the past two-and-a-half years.

Remember, you heard it here second!
