Hodgson Gets A Vital Boost

Liverpool have completed the signing of Fulham’s Paul Konchesky after months of speculation regarding a possible deal for the left back.

The Merseyside club have had a bid for the player accepted by those at Craven Cottage and the player, who has earned two caps for England, has been in Liverpool to complete a medical, sealing the move.

The 29 year old was in attendance for Liverpool’s first league win at home to West Brom on Sunday and it is thought that the defender can help sure up the Reds somewhat leaky defence as well as provide additional support in attack.

One player who will be heading out of Anfield is reserve striker Lauri Dalla Valle who will be heading in the opposite direction as part of the deal.

Reds manager Roy Hodgson, who worked with Konchesky during his spell in charge of Fulham of course.

Hodgson has also stated that he is looking to complete one more deal before the deadline, preferably that of a striker, but admitted that any possible deal for PSV Eindhoven’s Ola Toivenen was unlikely stating that he wasn’t the kind of player that he is looking to bring to the club.

After constant speculation regarding Konchesky’s imminent departure from the London club, manager Mark Hughes moved quickly to provide a replacement for the former West Ham player, bringing in Mexican international Carlos Salcido for Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.
