Aston Villa are reportedly playing hard ball with Liverpool as the latter attempts bring Stephen Warnock back to Anfield.

According to The Guardian, Villa have told the Merseysiders that they must cough up £500,000 to take the left-back on loan, as well as paying his wages in full for the remainder of the season.

However, Liverpool are unwilling to meet the demands of Villa and will only attempt to complete a deal if they are drastically lowered.

Liverpool have targeted Warnock as the man to replace Paul Konchesky, who looks to be edging closer to an Anfield exit.

Fulham have reportedly held discussions with Liverpool over a proposed loan deal for the 29-year-old, who has failed to nail down a regular starting berth.

Warnock spent 11 years at Anfield before being sold by Liverpool to Blackburn for around £2.5 million in 2007. The 29-year-old has 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 Villa Park and is thought to be keen to leave in order to find first team football - something Liverpool appear to be willing to offer.
