Hughes is also keen to sign former Fulham defender Paul Koncheskyand return him to the club after his unhappy six-month spell atLiverpool and the move will happen if Fulham can offload Mexicanleft-back Carlos Salcido.

After a bright start to his Craven Cottage career, Salcido has lost his place to Chris Baird.

The Fulham manager is also looking to add a striker after missing out on Roque Santa Cruz.

Should Konchesky leave Anfield, Liverpool's interim manager KennyDalglish will take Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock on loan for therest of the season.

Warnock was part of England's squad at last year's World Cup but hasbeen frozen out at Villa Park by Gerard Houllier and fancies a returnto Liverpool, where he started his career.

City will also let goalkeeper Shay Given go out on loan providedthey have the facility to recall him should first choice Joe Hart getinjured.

Given is keen to play regular first-team football but his £90,000-a-week wages are making it hard for other clubs to take him on.  Aston Villa 1 Manchester City 0: Bent begins payback with debut winnerClub-by-club guide to every Premier League transfer deal during JanuaryAll the latest Fulham news, features and opinionAll the latest Manchester City news, features and opinion
