Newcastle United tell Liverpool to take it or leave it

Newcastle United have delivered an untimatum to Liverpool over the possible signing of Andy Carroll, insisting that they will not go over their current £12 million offer for the striker.

Carroll has for long been linked with an exit from Anfield, and favours a move back to Tyneside than a switch to the likes of West Ham United and Aston Villa, whose offers he has rejected already.

However, the Magpies are refusing to reach Liverpool’s £20 million valuation for a player, and are ready to take Carroll off Brendan Rodgers’ hands only if the Reds are ready to incur a mammoth £23 million loss on the 23-year old, who they bought only 18 months ago.

Rodgers has already warned the England international that he will not be receiving a regular starting berth at Anfield, and is better off moving elsewhere. The striker nevertheless is only keen on a move to a club playing in Europe regularly, thereby rejecting an offer from the Hammers that reached the Reds’ valuation for the player, and boosted Carroll’s current pay package.

With only nine days left however, time is running out on Liverpool to make a decision, especially if Rodgers is keen on signing a replacement if Carroll is offloaded.

    Newcastle united fc should rather come to Ghana and buy those cheap local players for that 12m pounds and not Andy Carroll.He should see the kind of disrespect people have for him and back up his game.LFC,4REVER

    To be honest Carroll was never worth more than 15M in the first place. Liverpool or KD were foolish enough to pay 35M for him. It was good business for NC, bad for LFC.
    Still I understand BR wanting to get more, back for him. I would also keep him, hoping that he improves. However, I think there will be no change in Carroll’s performance. Come January or next summer LFC will be forced to offload him, probably for a similar fee that NC are offering.
