Anthony Le Tallec is heading for a return to Liverpool in the New Year.Anthony Le Tallec is heading for a return to Liverpool in the New Year according to the French press.
The young Frenchman was dispatched to St Etienne in a loan move after falling out of favour since Rafa Benitez's arrival at Anfield.
Le Tallec was once regarded as one of the brightest emerging talents in French football but seems to have lost confidence and form in the past year.
St Etienne director Damien Comolli went on record this week to state that coach Elie Baup 'no longer relies on Le Tallec'.
It is expected that the French outfit will terminate Le Tallec's deal in the New Year - with the player set for an earlier than expected return to Merseyside.
With Le Tallec unlikely to press for a first team berth at Liverpool, another loan move could well be on the cards.
