Path cleared for Liverpool to make first deadline day acquisition

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have allowed Paul Konchesky to join Nottingham Forest on loan, which will reportedly pave the way for Stephen Warnock's return to Anfield.

According to BBC 5 Live's Ian Dennis, Konchesky's departure will see the 'arrival of Warnock' from Aston Villa, with initial reports suggesting he will join Liverpool on loan for the remainder of the season.

As Konchesky neared the Anfield exit on Friday, The Guardian reported that Liverpool and Villa were struggling to reach an agreement over Warnock - with the latter demanding the Reds pay £500,000 to take the left-back on loan, as well as covering his wages in full.


Liverpool now have until 11p.m tonight to reach an agreement over the 29-year-old in what could be a busy deadline day at Anfield.

Warnock spent 11 years on Merseyside before being sold by Liverpool to Blackburn for around £2.5 million in 2007. The Liverpool Academy graduate enjoyed a rise back to prominence in recent times - even earning a call-up to England's World Cup squad as cover for Ashley Cole.

However, he has since fallen down the pecking order at Vill Park and is thought to be keen to leave in order to find first team football - something Liverpool appear to be willing to offer.
