West Ham Boss Admits Andy Carroll Could Make Liverpool January Return

On loan Upton Park forward could be on his way back to Anfield.

“So it looked as if it wasn’t going to happen – and then right at the very end there was an opportunity where he could leave and we struck that deal very quickly.”

“There’s an opportunity for Liverpool [to get him back in January] if they want to, but whether they do or they don’t will be in a matter of time.”

“If Andy’s playing for us on a regular basis by then and that’s the case, he’ll have played a major part in keeping us in the league this year. In the end, the deal was structured to get the player however you could get him, from my point of view.”

“This player is that big, in my opinion, for us this season, so you do whatever you can do to get the deal done.”

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers seemingly only agreed to loan out big forward Andy Carroll on the premise that he would see the arrival of another attacker on transfer deadline-day, an arrival that never occurred. This left the Anfield boss desperately short of striking options and therefore a move to bring back the England international at some point during his season long loan spell at Upton Park seems very plausible.

Though Liverpool have performed fairly well they still find themselves without a win after four matches and have managed just three goals from four matches thus far. Rodgers only has two recognised senior strikers in his squad, the very capable Luis Suarez and unproven new signing Fabio Borini, who is still waiting for his first Premier League goal.

Carroll had a good debut for West Ham against Fulham before he was hauled off with an injury.
