Liverpool look set to renew their interest in taking former left-back Stephen Warnock on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the season, should Paul Konchesky agree a move back to Fulham.

Konchesky hasn’t played for the Reds since Kenny Dalglish took over and has been an unpopular figure at Anfield since his summer move from Craven Cottage.

Dalglish has preferred to play Glen Johnson out of position at left back rather than use Konchesky, with Fabio Aurelio as second choice.

It’s understood that the 29-year-old former West Ham and Charlton man could be set to return to London before the January transfer window’s deadline of Monday night.

The Guardian report that Liverpool are confident of agreeing a deal with Villa for Ormskirk born Warnock, with a view to making the deal permanent in the summer, once Konchesky has been offloaded.

Warnock left Liverpool for Blackburn Rovers in 2007, before moving to Villa Park in 2009. He made 67 appearances for the Reds between 1998-2007.
