Liverpool Outcast Will Take Pay Cut To Leave Anfield

Liverpool outcast Andy Carroll is set to send fans on Tyneside into a frenzy after declaring that he is prepared to take a pay cut to engineer a return to Newcastle United this summer.

The 24 year old England international made a 35 million pound switch from Newcastle to Liverpool in January 2011, but failed to settle down at Anfield, and was sent out on loan this season to West Ham United as the Reds tried to get the expensive youngster off their wage bill.

Carroll’s current wages at Anfield are believed to be in the region of £90,000 a week, while Newcastle’s highest earner only pockets £60,000 a week. Carroll will need to fit into the wage structure prevalent at the club should he make the move, which isn’t likely to be easy.

Liverpool are asking for 17 million pounds to part with Carroll, reportedly willing to make close to a 50% loss on the player, but Newcastle are hoping to knock the price down further as they believe the England international isn’t worth such an astronomical fee.
