Rodgers rules out Carroll loan
Andy Carroll has been linked with a return to Newcastle
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists there is no chance of Andy Carroll leaving the club on loan, but admits the Reds will consider any offers they receive for the striker.
The Anfield club are understood to have turned down a bid from the England international's former club Newcastle to re-sign him on a season-long loan earlier this month. Carroll's Liverpool future is still far from certain, though, after a disappointing first 18 months on Merseyside since his £35million move from the Magpies.
Rodgers told Sky Sports News: "I've spoken openly and honestly with Andy in terms of where he is at, but I have done the same with all of the players, I have spoken to all of them, I have had communication with all of the group."
He continued: "It gets highlighted more with Andy because he is a young player. Maybe others may not see him fitting in with me, but for me he is an important part of the group.
"There is talk of him going on loan, but there is absolutely no way I would be looking to loan a player like that, especially after the investment the club have paid.
"But his condition will be the same as every player. If an offer comes in for any player at the club we would either look at it, or dismiss it, and Andy's no different to that."

this is old news, we already know that Rodgers will not go for a loan move, but I dont understand why Rodgers who still has not met the guy can bin him without the assesment of the whole squad that he has been banging on about,
We should at least give Carroll another season and see where we are at then, I still believe that he will be a powerhouse attacker if given the right tuition and more importantly a fair crack of the whip to prove himself.
" the Reds could consider offers " what club in their right mind would pay any more than 5m for him.
Dalglish watched him score a couple of goals for Newcastle and then thought him to be a good player.
Dalglish must have had a bang on the head, what an idiot.
Wasting a total of about 120m he has brought Liverpool to their knees.
And for your info i am not a ManU or ManC fan.
