2012/13 English League Championship
The left-back was initially on the books of West Ham's youth academy, but eventually joined Charlton Athletic as a trainee in 1997, though he had to wait until the 2000-01 season to get a regular run in the team. Frustrated at a lack of regular selection and buoyed by receiving his first England cap earlier that year, Konchesky handed in a transfer request in June 2003, but could only move to Spurs on loan.
With his career seemingly stalled he remained at Charlton until July 2005 when West Ham agreed a £1.5 million fee for his services and he impressed, especially in the club's run to the 2006 FA Cup final. But his time at Upton Park turned sour as they sank into the relegation zone and he eventually made the move to Fulham ahead of the 2007-08 season after making 59 appearances at for the Hammers.
Impressing at Craven Cottage, he became a fixture in the side and in three years enhanced his reputation with a run to the Europa League final. It was enough to seal him his last chance of a big move, as he made the switch to Liverpool in the summer of 2010.
Strengths: Physical and commanding, he loves a tackle and can use his pace to get himself out of tricky situations. He also boasts a good delivery when he gets forward.
Weaknesses: Hot-headed and impetuous, he is not the calmest on the ball and sometimes struggles with consistency.
Career high: Scoring a wonder goal for West Ham in the FA Cup final against Liverpool in 2006.
Career low: Singled out by West Ham fans in 2006-07 as the club slipped into the relegation zone.
Style: Physical, dynamic, a tough and hard-working defender.
Quotes: "There aren't many quality left-backs around in the world, never mind in England - so to find an English one who can go straight into the team without any adjustment problems is a big advantage.'' Roy Hodgson on signing Konchesky.
Trivia: He became Charlton's youngest-ever first team player when aged just 16 years and 93 days he appeared against Oxford in 1997.
