With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Andy Carroll is linked with a move back to Newcastle.
Andy Carroll could make a £17m move back to former side Newcastle United, according to the Mirror.
The report claims that Newcastle have offered to take Carroll back on a season long loan with the promise of making the move permanent in 12 months time. However, their offer appears to have been turned down by the Reds.
Toon boss Alan Pardew is keen to link up with Carroll again and has the backing of owner Mike Ashley, who is believed to be in support of a move to bring back the striker just 18 months after sanctioning his £35m sale.
The Mirror claim that new boss Brendan Rodgers will allow Carroll to leave Merseyside on loan this summer, but it’s understood the Reds will demand £17m from the Geordies to make the deal permanent.
AC Milan and West Ham have also been linked with the 23-year-old but the player is thought to favour a return to Newcastle.
After a difficult start to life at Anfield, Carroll’s Liverpool career looked to have finally taken off when he found his form towards the end of last season. It earned him a place in Roy Hodgsons England squad for Euro 2012, where the striker scored an excellent header during the three lions win over Sweden.

But it looks like his days at Liverpool could be coming to an end as Brendan Rodgers looks to introduce his own style of play at the club, and the target man isn’t in his first team plans.
