Brendan Rodgers remained coy when quizzed over the future of on-loan Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.

The England international was shipped out to West Ham United last August but has been limited to just 19 appearances for the Hammers due to a series of niggling injuries.

“It’s nothing to discuss now,” Rodgers told Fox Sports. “It’s something we’ll speak about at the end of the season.”

The 24-year-old, signed from Newcastle for £35m in January 2011, has still managed to notch up five goals for the east Londoners this term.

And Rodgers revealed that the Reds have been keeping close tabs on his progress at Upton Park.

“We’ve monitored it very closely,” he added. “We’ve had representatives from Liverpool at most of the games.

“It’s obviously been a difficult season for Andy because his initial idea was he wanted to go out and play every week, but unfortunately for him he’s picked up some injuries since he’s been away.

“But he scored two very good goals at the weekend and he’ll be looking to finish the season on a high and achieve the objectives he wanted to before he went out.”
