Carroll set for cut-price summer sell-off

Andy Carroll is set to leave Liverpool this summer.
The £35million flop came on for the closing 25 minutes of Liverpool’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.
Last Sunday, on his return to Newcastle, Carroll delivered a torrent of abuse as he stormed straight down the tunnel after being subbed.
Manager Kenny Dalglish has insisted that reaction has been dealt with.
But an Anfield insider revealed: “Kenny has gone out of his way to protect Carroll from criticism. He’s straight with his staff, but many people here are concerned that players like Andy have not adapted to the Liverpool way.”
Carroll has told friends he’d welcome a return to Tyneside but his current wages would break Newcastle's pay scale and they would only be interested in a cut-price summer deal.
