Anfield manager, Brendan Rodgers unravelled that were not willing to send their 35 million pound striker, Andy Carroll out on loan, insisting that only a decent offer can result in him moving away from Anfield.
The English International has been one of the subjects of the Merseyside outfit’s summer transfer discussions, as it is widely believed that Carroll cannot fit into the Northern Irishman’s short passing and possession retaining playing style that he is looking
to introduce at the club.
Earlier, Rodgers had hinted that the player is likely to be sold during the summer.
Clubs such as West Ham United, Fulham and Newcastle United have already expressed their interest in him, with the Magpies being considered as the favourites to succeed in landing the player back at the Sports Direct Arena.
With Liverpool having already spurned loan offers from Newcastle and the Hammers, Rodgers revealed that the Reds had no plans of sending the player on a loan spell. He indicated that the club will only entertain an overture comparable to his whooping 35
million pounds transfer fee that they paid back in January, 2011.
He told the club’s official website, “To consider a loan period for someone the club spent £35million on isn't something we're looking to do at this moment in time. Andy will be the same as every other player - if there's ever an offer that comes in we'd
look at it as a club and see if it's going to be worthwhile for the club and the team as a whole.”
Carroll, who was one of the most fashionable players at Tyneside, has struggled to find his rhythm at Anfield. In his 56 appearances for Liverpool so far, he has managed to score just 11 goals.
However, the manager revealed that he was in no rush whatsoever, in off loading the striker, and claimed that he will join his team-mates at the training sessions next week.
When asked if Carroll’s incompatibly with his playing style was the reason behind his proposed transfer, the 39-year old responded by saying that given the amount of money that the Reds have spent on the player, they will be willing to stick with him under
any playing style.
