Newcastle United are ready to make an offer to Liverpool that would see Andy Carroll return to the club on a season-loan loan with a view to then completing a permanentt deal.
The England striker has become the subject of much speculation in recent weeks and it seems that Alan Pardew is also interested in re-signing the striker who has enjoyed a difficult 18 months on Merseyside.
West Ham United and AC Milan have both been linked with the forward in recent weeks, with speculation becoming further heightened after Liverpool agreed a deal to sign Roma striker Fabio Borini.
Carroll moved to Liverpool for £35million but has struggled to become a regular in the first XI and has scored just 11 goals in his 56 appearances for the club.
Sky Sports understands that Newcastle are hoping to speak to Brendan Rodgers to see if a deal would be possible after the manager admitted that he would not be against the idea of sending him out on-loan.
Carroll enjoyed his most productive spell playing under Pardew who managed to get the best out of the 23-year-old, something that Liverpool have so far managed to achieve.
There has been no official word from Liverpool or Newcastle on the matter but it could certainly be a interesting few days for both clubs.
