Bit of a left field rumour from tomorrow’s News of the Screws. They reckon Steve Bruce wouldn’t allowed to go back to Wigan and move for Maynor Figueroa so he might turn his attentions to Paul Konchesky instead.

The twice-capped England defender is still waiting for new talks to start over extending his current deal at Craven Cottage and appeared to fall out with a section of the fans during the midweek win against Blackburn.

The 28-year-old cost £3.25million when moving across London from West Ham in July, 2007.

Anyone know what the journalist’s on about? I didn’t spot it.

Should imagine Roy would look to tie Konchesky down to a new deal over the next month or so. He’s always spoken highly of him. And, with a long-standing knee problem, would he pass a stringent top flight medical anyway?
