Rodgers Expects Quick Decision On Carroll

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects Andy Carroll’s future to be decided in the coming weeks.

The Reds have agreed a fee with West Ham for the striker after Carroll enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Hammers this season. The move, though, could be in doubt after Carroll picked up a heel injury which could rule him out for up to two months.

But Rodgers does not expect any potential move to drag on in the same manner as last season. And the manager revealed he has spoken to Carroll about resolving his future quickly.

“It was just a general conversation in terms of the experience of getting out and playing,” Rodgers told the Guardian. “He enjoyed that apart from the injury.

“At the start of the season the whole thing was about going and getting games because he wasn’t going to be a starter here. We will talk again with him and the club to see how it all evolves. It’s one of those situations where it will probably be resolved a lot quicker than that for both parties.”

“In terms of the money, that’s something out of my control. But he’s a talent so we will assess the whole situation.
