A summer transfer was thought to be in the pipeline after the two clubs agreed a £15 million deal without personal terms being sorted but it now appears that the 24-year-old striker has decided he would rather at stay with Liverpool.
“Things haven’t worked out for Andy at Liverpool but he went there with high hopes and isn’t ready to throw in the towel just yet,” a source is reported to have told Goal.
West Ham had hoped that Carroll would make his successful loan spell, where he scored seven goals, permanent but Carroll is focused at playing for a side challenging for a top-four place rather than fighting relegation.
“He enjoyed his time with West Ham but feels he has unfinished business at Anfield.”
Carroll’s former club Newcastle United are also understood to be interested in the England international but the reported bad relationship between the two clubs may make any transfer difficult.
