Reds close to Carroll sale

It is rumoured Liverpool have agreed a fee with West Ham for Striker Carroll after the club showed desire in keeping the player after his successful loan spell at Upton Park.

Reports suggest Liverpool had a £15 million offer accepted on Tuesday for the 24-year-old, and it all depends on Carroll’s willingness for a permanent move.

Rodgers told the reporters he has spoken to Carroll about his future, telling

“It was just a general conversation in terms of the experience of getting out and playing. 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.  It’s a difficult one. I spoke to him and we had a good chat.  In terms of the money, that’s something out of my control. But he’s a talent so we will assess the whole situation.  The objective at the beginning of the season was for him to go out and play. He’s gone away to think of what we spoke about and we will talk again through the weeks.”

Cole set to leave Liverpool

Joe Cole

Looks like Joe Cole’s disappointing time at Anfield could soon be over after he has been told he is free to find another club.

West Ham appear to be the front runners for his signature and have started talks. Reports are he will be available on a free transfer, Liverpool will have to pay Joe Cole a settlement tho to cancel his current deal and get his £100,000 a week salary off the wage bill.

Joe Cole was signed from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2010. But after being sent off in his first match he never really settled in. He was then loaned to French club Lille last season.

Unfortunately Joe Cole will likely go down as one of Roy Hodgson’s most costly transfers due to his ridiculous wages he was receiving while hardly ever playing.
