Carroll happy to stay at Liverpool

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has reiterated that he will stay at Anfield and has no desire to leave the club amid rumours of a transfer away, The Guardian reports. The Reds had reportedly offered Manchester City the striker in return for Carlos Tevez to Anfield, but Kenny Dalglish has rebuffed the deal.

Carroll joined Liverpool for £35m from Newcastle last January, but has failed to nail down a regular first-team place. The 23 year old had a great game against Manchester United in the FA Cup on Saturday, but he has still only scored six goals for the Reds. Reds boss Dalglish has kept faith with Carroll and the striker is ready to play out until the end of his current contract.

The striker said: ‘I’m just here. I’ve signed a contract here and this is the team I’m playing for. I love it here. All the lads are great with me in training and away from the training ground everyone has been great with me as well. The club has been great with me and I’m enjoying it here. Winning in midweek [against Manchester City in the Carling Cup] and getting to the final and then Man U coming here, beating them and getting through, it’s a great feeling.’

Dalglish is still interested in bringing another striker to the club, but will be delighted that Luis Suarez can return from his eight match ban next week. The Uruguayan has been missed by the Reds and City striker Carlos Tevez has been earmarked as a potential signing on loan.
