Liverpool transfers: Rodgers expects ‘quick decision’ on Carroll’s future
Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers expects a "quick decision" to be made about Andy Carroll's future amid West Ham interest
Brendan Rodgers believes Andy Carroll’s future will be resolved quickly, with West Ham United hoping to land the Liverpool striker on a permanent deal.
The England international was a key part of Sam Allardyce’s Hammers side as they secured a 10th-place finish in the Premier League this term.
Carroll scored seven goals in 23 top-flight appearances after joining on a season-long loan, and West Ham are keen to secure the forward’s return to Upton Park.
Rodgers has held talks with the 24-year-old in recent days, and the Liverpool manager envisages the forward’s Reds future to be resolved imminently.
“It was just a general conversation in terms of the experience of getting out and playing,” Rodgers told the Guardian. “He enjoyed that apart from the injury.
“At the start of the season the whole thing was about going and getting games because he wasn’t going to be a starter here. We will talk again with him and the club to see how it all evolves. It’s one of those situations where it will probably be resolved a lot quicker than that for both parties.”
Carroll has scored 11 goals in 58 appearances for Liverpool after completing a club-record £35m switch to the Reds from Newcastle United in January 2011.
