Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has distanced himself from speculation concerning a return to the club for Andy Carroll.

Carroll, 23, is known to be available, with the Liverpool forward not part of new manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans for the club.

Pardew, though, insists that any deal to bring the England striker to the club is in the hands of chairman Mike Ashley.

“That whole process is a little bit more involved with the chairman and the board at Liverpool,” Pardew told Newcastle’s Evening Chronicle newspaper. “We’ve got a great team here, a great squad, and if Andy Carroll comes it’ll only add to us.”

He added: “It’s simple, really. Sometimes transfers are done at corporate level. I’m slightly detached from that. It’ll be what it’ll be.

“It’s been said that he’s available, and if we’re involved then we’ll be involved because of the figures, not anything else, because we know he’s good enough. I’m slightly detached from it.”

Carroll spent five years in the Newcastle senior squad, playing 91 games and scoring 33 goals for the Magpies.
