Ashley key to Carroll deal - Pardew

Published Add your comment

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will leave the club's bid to lure Andy Carroll back to Tyneside to owner Mike Ashley.

The 50-year-old is keen to secure the England international's return from Liverpool, with the Magpies having had an initial bid for a loan move with an option to buy rejected.

It seems likely that the success or otherwise of their approach will come down to finance as much as anything else, but Pardew, currently in Germany with his squad at their pre-season training camp, admits that has little to do with him. "That whole process is a little bit more involved with the chairman and the board at Liverpool," he told the Evening Chronicle.
