Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Andy Carroll will stay with the club.
The England striker has been linked with moves to West Ham United and former club Newcastle United after struggling to make an impact at Anfield since his £35 million pound move in January 2011.
Carroll has showed signs of his true form at the tail end of last season and in the aftermath of Liverpool’s pre season draw with Spurs in Baltimore, during which Carroll came on a sub, Rodgers indicated that the striker was in plans for the new season.
“There has been a lot written about Andy, but you saw today he’s happy to be here and he’s worked very well since he’s been here” Rodgers said
“The reality is he’s still a Liverpool player, he can fit into how I want to play, and he’s happy here.
“I’m certainly not wishing to push him out of the door.”
