Newcastle have made a sensational approach to Liverpool to bring Andy Carroll back to Tyneside.
Press Association Sport understands the Magpies are keen to secure a season-long loan deal for the man they sold to the Reds for £35million in January last year, with a view to sealing a permanent switch.
The news comes amid speculation that the 23-year-old is not part of manager Brendan Rodgers' long-term plans.
