Newcastle have confirmed they made an offer for their former striker Andy Carroll last night, but it has been rejected out of hand by Liverpool – however there is breaking news in the Evening Chronicle this morning that Andy has told friends he wants to return to Newcastle - to come home.Andy Carroll when at Newcastle
We thought last night that Newcastle would have some inside information on the Carroll situation, since it would be easy to reach his friends to find out what Andy is really thinking, after Brendan Rodgers seems to have already made up his mind that the big man has no place at Liverpool under his stewardship.A close friend of Carroll told the Evening Chronicle last night:
“Newcastle are interested – and Andy wants to come home. He’s already told Liverpool that too.” “From a professional point of view Andy is miffed that he wasn’t given the chance to show what he can do in front of new manager Brendan Rodgers.”
“He was expecting to get at least pre-season to show what he could offer him.” “He ended last season on a high and wanted to continue that.”
The news is that Liverpool would prefer to sell Carroll and are not too interested in a loan deal, and of course they will want to get back as much of the £35M as possible that they shelled out to Newcastle for the striker a short 18 months ago, with the advice of then manager Kenny Dalglish.
Yes, i'll have him.
