Liverpool sell Paul Konchesky

Paul Konchesky’s brief spell at Liverpool has ended after he became Liverpool’s first significant sale of the summer.

Roy Hodgson brought the left back from Fulham last August in a deal worth £3M plus two youth players. Many eyebrows were raised amongst the Liverpool faithful at the signing of a 4 year deal for the player.

Konchesky failed to make the grade at Anfield and after Hodgson was sacked and Dalglish took over he was quickly sent off on loan to Nottingham Forest.

The player travelled to Sweden yesterday to join up with Leicester City on tour, and passed his medical.  The club announced this morning that he would be joining the Foxes on a 3 year deal.

Sven Goran Eriksson was delighted with the addition:

“Paul has been a Premier League player year in and year out throughout his career so he represents a very big signing for us.

“He wanted to come to Leicester City and it means a lot that proven, established top flight footballers want to be part of what we are building here.

“I know Paul very well as a player and as a person and he will be a top class addition to our squad.”

The fee is rumoured to be in the region of £1.5M.
