Newcastle not in for Liverpool striker.
Newcastle United have supposedly ruled themselves out of a bid for Liverpool’s Andy Carroll, according to Sky Sports.
The striker initially joined Liverpool from Newcastle for in 2011 for £35million, a record transfer fee for a British player. However, the 24-year-old has not been a success at Anfield, scoring just 11 goals in 58 appearances for the club.
He has since been farmed out on loan to West Ham, and his form has improved at Upton Park under Sam Allardyce, who is now keen to land the England international on a permanent deal.
The Hammers have agreed a fee of £15million with Liverpool, who have no plans to keep Carroll, and his former club Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in his services.
However, the club claim they will not be making a move for their old player, who is said to be weighing up other options before committing to a move to West Ham.
Monaco have been linked with a surprise interest in Carroll, and Tottenham are also said to be monitoring his situation, and he would favour a switch to a club playing European football.
