Liverpool have had a club-record bid for Newcastle striker Andy Carroll accepted by the north-east club.

The figure is believed to be in the region of £35million after an earlier bid of £30million was turned down.

The news, confirmed by both clubs, seems to pave the way for Reds striker Fernando Torres to make his move to Chelsea for a reported £50million.

Carroll is believed to be on his way to the north west to discuss personal terms with the Reds and undergo a medical.

"Liverpool FC confirmed this afternoon that Newcastle United had accepted a club-record offer for the transfer of Andy Carroll," the Anfield club in a statement.
