Pardew wants Carroll back, begs Ashley
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has pleaded to owner Mike Ashley to bring back England international striker Andy Carroll by splashing £35 million.
Carroll was sold to Liverpool just 18 months ago by Pardew, who is know begging Ashley to bring him back. Newcastle initially planned to bring the striker back on a season-long loan which has been foiled by Liverpool. Now, the Magpies wants the ace striker back at St James' Park.
Pardew said, “We have got a great team here, a great squad, and if Andy Carroll comes, it will only add to us. It's been said that he's available and if we are involved, then we will be involved because of the figures, not anything else, because we know he's good enough.”
Liverpool is contemplating a permanent transfer and are not even remotely interested in temporary loan transfer for Carroll. The attempt to bring Andy back was started by Newcastle after the Reds' boss Rodgers did not show any positive plans of playing the striker in the new season.
However, Carroll was not interested in leaving Anfield permanently but is ready to return to St. James' Park for a temporary show. Also people close to Andy claim that he is disappointed for being not given a chance to showcase his talent with the Reds.
With the turn of events and not-so-welcoming gesture at Anfield, Carroll hopes to get back home. A source said, “Now Newcastle are interested and Andy wants to come home. He’s already told Liverpool that too. He’s surprised Liverpool don’t want him anymore and doesn’t want to be where he is not wanted.”
