Liverpool defender Paul Konchesky could reportedly return to Fulham just one season after leaving Craven Cottage.

According to the Daily Mail, Carlos Salcido's imminent departure means the west Londoners are on the lookout for a new left-back, and Mark Hughes is said to have identified Konchesky as the ideal replacement.

The 30-year-old followed Roy Hodgson to Anfield last summer in a deal worth around £4 million, but has endured a horrible spell at Liverpool.

His performances have attracted the ire of Liverpool fans and, after Hodgson's departure in January, the defender was loaned out to npower Championship side Nottingham Forest.

It has been widely expected that Konchesky would not return to Anfield in the summer as Liverpool actively search for a long-term replacement.


Glen Johnson and John Flanagan have both been deployed on the left-side of the Liverpool defence by Kenny Dalglish, but the Reds are likely to bring in a player who naturally fits the position.

Newcastle's Jose Enrique is the favourite to make the move to Anfield, with Liverpool legend Phil Thompson claiming a deal has already been struck between the two clubs.
