Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has rubbished rumours that Paul Konchesky could leave the club.

This morning’s Daily Mirror reported that Blackburn were lining up a £2m move for the former West Ham left back as a possible replacement for Stephen Warnock. But Hodgson was insistent that the 27 year-old defender would not be leaving Craven Cottage.

He told Sky Sports News: “I have no idea where that story has come from. No-one has approached us about Paul Konchesky because it is pretty obvious to everyone we are not interested in the slightest about selling Paul Konchesky.

“And if I was Paul Konchesky I would be very sad to see my name linked with a £2million transfer when I am a player who is worth a lot more than that. God only knows where that has come from. There must be a reason for it. Someone must have an agenda and is using Paul’s name to further it. Paul Konchesky is not for sale. He is our star left-back.”
