As Fabio Aurelio is returning from injury to give some much needed competition to Konchesky at left back, I understand that Insua will be returning to Liverpool from his loan spell at Galatasaray in January as their new manager, Gheorghe Hagi, does not want any loan players in his squad. However if Galatasaray decide to buy Insua then he will not be a loan player and he may then remain at the club. But with the way things are looking, Insua will be headed back to Anfield in January.

This will give us more cover at left back and more options as I have not been impressed by Konchesky at all this season. Insua had a long run in the team last season and did well on occasions. His biggest weakness is his height as he is very short and thus is vulnerable when he is up against taller players when it comes to the aerial tussles. There is nothing we can do about his height, if he is short he is short thus he has to make up for it in other departments.

I would not mind seeing Insua return at all as I would rather have him ahead of Konchesky but not ahead of Aurelio when he is fit.
