Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has reversed his previous stance and claimed he would "need to be a nutcase" to let striker Andy Carroll leave the club on loan.

Rodgers hit out at Newcastle for trying to get Carroll - a player they sold to Liverpool for £35million in January 2011 - back on the cheap, and said he did not have enough depth in his squad to let the England striker leave without raising funds for a replacement.

"There is absolutely no chance [of a loan deal] - and certainly not Newcastle," Rodgers said, quoted by the Guardian. "Newcastle got £35m for this player last year. To even consider wanting to take him on loan is a liberty really."
