Alan Pardew: "He hasn't really had a run in that Liverpool side and like all strikers, he probably needs a run.
"He's a great lad and a great player. I like Andy.
"It was disappointing to see him left out of the England squad the last time because I think he can be an England player and England's number nine.
"He is going through a period of transition at a new club, finding his feet and finding out that they play slightly differently to how we did here, but he will find his way."
