Carroll plans Rodgers talks

Andy Carroll intends to meet Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to discuss his future at Anfield, with the striker keen to be part of the new manager's plans despite suggestions that he could leave this summer.

Whether Carroll will fit into Rodgers' playing style is a subject of conjecture, with the manager hailed for the passing game he employed at Swansea City.

Carroll, a target man, has struggled for form since his £35 million transfer from Newcastle to the Reds in January 2011, and recent speculation has claimed a loan deal could be the offing.

AC Milan have been linked with move for him while, on Wednesday, West Ham confirmed they intend to propose a season-long agreement, although a source told ESPN the Hammers have around a "10%" chance of the approach being successful.

ESPN has now learnt that Carroll, 23, is determined to prove himself on Merseyside. A source said: "Andy is on holiday, and when he returns he is sure to seek clarification about his future with the new Liverpool manager.

"So there won't be anything for around ten days until that conversation takes place. It's all very well having discussions on the phone, but this requires a face to face.

"The feeling is that Andy won't leave Liverpool because he is proud to be a Liverpool player and wants to prove to the manager that he is capable of fitting into his system. It might be that the manager doesn't think Andy will fit in, but Andy wants to prove that he can.

"Andy knows he will get his chance, and when he does he wants to take it. So his immediate thoughts are to stay and prove himself capable of adapting to a new style of play. But it is early days, and we shall have to wait and see how it all unfolds."
