After several weeks of Liverpool looking ready to cut their losses on Andy Carroll, the Reds manager, Brendan Rodgers appears to have extended the olive branch to the 23-year-old English international forward for the time being.
Potential deals to sell the player back to Newcastle United were followed by a potential sale of loan deal with West Ham United.
However, neither appears to have made the grade and Rodgers is set to offer the player a chance to prove himself now that he has returned to preseason training following his holiday post the UEFA European Championship.
Carroll was thought be a massive acquisition for the club when he was first signed but after struggling for over a year to finally regain his full fitness he only started to hit peak form near the end of the 2011-12 season.
A strong performance in the Euros also gave him more value, but Liverpool was thought to be set to use his sale to fund additional transfers. However, according to The Sun, the Geordie giant is set to have at least one more shot at appeasing the Kop before he is finally put on the chopping block.
