Liverpool are being linked with a move for English full back Paul Konchesky.

The 29-year-old defender could be the subject of a £3 million move from the Anfield club, with new Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson keen to bring his former player to Merseyside.

Konchesky began his career at Charlton, making his debut as a teenager in 1999. His eight year career at the Valley included a brief loan spell at Spurs, but the left-sided defender joined West Ham United in 2005.

After two years with the Hammers, Konchesky moved to current club Fulham for a fee reportedly in the region of £3.25 million. He has since made 96 Premier League appearances for the Cottagers.

At international level, Konchesky has featured twice for England, making his debut in 2003 and featuring against Argentina in 2005. Both caps came under the reign of Swede Sven-Goran Erikkson.

The defender was left out of Fulham's side for the opening fixture of the season amid reports that the Reds were closing on a move, and the News of the World reports that Hodgson is keen on a cut-price deal before the transfer window shuts.

Mark Hughes is keen to keep the player at Craven Cottage despite leaving him out of the squad at the Reebok stadium, but with only a year left on his contract Fulham may be forced to negotiate if Konchesky wants to follow his former manager north.
