Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he would take a decision on Andy Carroll once the season draws to an end.

The 24-year-old was sent out on a season-long loan to West Ham United in the previous summer, as the manager did not deem his playing style to fit in his plans.

However, Carroll has suffered a spell marred by injuries and inconsistencies at Upton Park, but looked in good form last week, scoring a brace in the Hammers 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Some reports have revealed that the West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is reluctant to go for a permanent move for the English international in the summer, given his failure to make a notable impression.

Consequently, rumours have emerged that the Reds are willing to welcome him back in their ranks and be utilized as a squad player.

Brendan Rodgers, however, has revealed that no final decision has been taken yet on Carroll’s future and that he will address the issue at the end of the term.

The Northern Irishman lamented the striker’s injury-plagued spell with the Hammers, but hoped he will be able to rediscover his best form in the season’s run-in.

The manager told Fox Sports: “It’s nothing to discuss now. It’s something we’ll speak about at the end of the season.

“We’ve monitored it (his form) very closely. We’ve had representatives from Liverpool at most of the games.

“It’s obviously been a difficult season for Andy because his initial idea was he wanted to go out and play every week, but unfortunately for him he’s picked up some injuries since he’s been away.

“But he scored two very good goals at the weekend and he’ll be looking to finish the season on a high and achieve the objectives he wanted to before he went out.”

The former Newcastle United player has scored five goals in 17 league matches for West Ham.
