Out-of-favour Liverpool defender Paul Konchesky has joined Nottingham Forest on loan just five months after arriving at Anfield, manager Kenny Dalglish has confirmed.

The 30-year-old was signed on transfer deadline day in August by Roy Hodgson but struggled to win over fans and has been unable to shake off his association with the former Reds boss and the club's poor start to the season.

Konchesky has featured just once - as an unused substitute - in Dalglish's squad for the five matches he has been in charge with right-back Glen Johnson preferred on the left.
