Liverpool fans permit Carroll sale

Liverpool should sell striker Andy Carroll in the January transfer window just a year on from his move to Anfield, according to a poll conducted by GiveMeFootball.

The 23-year-old has netted just six goals since his £35 million move from Newcastle United on deadline day in the January transfer window last season.

Carroll netted 11 goals during the first-half of the last campaign, but has seen a lack of form and a limit of first-team opportunities amid Luis Suarez's superb form since his move from Ajax, restrict his involvement.

With a succession of reports claiming that Alan Pardew was seeking to re-sign the England international, with top scorer Demba Ba away on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, Reds fans have spoken out over the future of Carroll.

Of those polled, 56% of Liverpool fans were in favour of selling Carroll, 39% felt they'd be better off sticking with the striker and 5% weren't sure on the matter.

With Suarez currently serving his eight-match ban, Carroll is likely to be handed an extended opportunity in Kenny Dalglish's starting XI until the Uruguayan's comeback next month.

Fans from the red half of Merseyside can take solace from Fernando Torres' current plight, which has seen the Spaniard failed to recapture the form he so often showed at Liverpool.
