A Liverpool spokesman has denied newspaper reports that Newcastle United could re-sign striker Andy Carroll in the January transfer window.
Carroll, 23, has struggled for form since joining Liverpool from Newcastle in January 2011 for £35 million, scoring just four goals in 25 Premier League appearances.
The England international's future at Anfield has been the subject of conjecture, and reports in the Daily Mail and The Sun on Wednesday have suggested the Magpies are open to re-signing the forward.
Both newspapers claim Newcastle would be willing to offer £10 million for Carroll, which would mean a £25 million loss for the Reds, whose manager Kenny Dalglish has consistently stated the striker has a future on Merseyside.
However, a Liverpool spokesman is quoted as saying in the Express: "It is complete nonsense. There is nothing in it."
