Former Newcastle captain Alan Shearer believes returning to Tyneside would be a "great move" for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.

Press Association Sport understands the Reds flatly turned down the Magpies' bid to re-sign the 23-year-old international on a season-long loan over the weekend, but have made it known they would be willing to listen to offers for a permanent transfer for a player who cost them £35million 18 months ago.

And Shearer reckons heading back to the north-east could be the best option for Carroll. "I can fully understand why Newcastle are in for him and I think it would be a great move," he told The Sun.
