Andy Carroll: Newcastle poised to improve loan offer for striker

Newcastle are expected to return with an improved offer to take Liverpool’s Andy Carroll on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal in future.

Liverpool dismissed Newcastle’s first offer on Sunday night, but the Anfield club will consider a better deal.

Newcastle initially only offered to pay part of Carroll’s £80,000-a-week wages.

Newcastle also wanted to pay £13m if the 23-year-old then signed a permanant deal – the Reds are understood to want at least £17m.


If the difference between the two sides valuations of the players is just £4m then it seems entirely possible that an offer of £15m could well get the deal done and dusted.

Neither side will want any period of uncertainty to hang in the balance for too long and if Alan Pardew does indeed want to bring Andy Carroll back to St James’ Park and if Brendan Rodgers doesn’t see the 23 year old England international as part of his plans then clearly a permanent move back to the North-East is best for all concerned, that is of course if the player himself wants such a move to come to fruition.

Kenny Dalglish spent a great deal of time dealing with constant criticism over the expensive signing of Andy Carroll and regardless of cost the Gateshead born marksman has failed to prove himself over the 18 months he has spent at the Merseyside club.

Clearly the fee placed on his head was not of Carroll’s choosing and the weight of expectation has proved something of a burden for the Liverpool forward, perhaps a fresh start will help to get his career back on track.
