Fulham coup with Dalla Valle arriving in Konchesky Liverpool swap

Fulham are delighted with their deal for new Liverpool signing Paul Konchesky.

The Cottagers have secured the services of promising youngsters Lauri Dalla Valle and Alex Kacaniklic from Liverpool as part of a cash plus players deal, that has seen Konchesky move to Anfield.

Finnish striker Lauri Dalla Valle recently made his first team debut for Liverpool having impressed at youth team level in recent seasons. The 18-year-old scored eight goals as the Reds reached the FA Youth Final in 2009.

Swedish winger Alex Kacaniklic was also a member of Liverpool's Youth Cup team in 2009, scoring in the Final against Arsenal. Having joined Liverpool's Academy from Helsingborg in the summer of 2007, Kacaniklic was promoted to Liverpool's Reserve team after two years.

Given the long-term interest of Barcelona and Ajax in Dalla Valle, many believe Fulham have pulled off a coup in negotiations over the multi-player swap.
