Alan Pardew: “It’s a delicate situation.
“It’s a transfer that I’m not particularly involved in, and it’ll stay like that.
“I think that it’ll still be a board-level thing between Liverpool and whichever club takes Andy.
“I think that the writing is on the wall that Andy will go out of there in the summer. We’re just keeping a close eye on it.
“I thought that Alan Shearer’s comments were correct, it would be a great move for him.
“There aren’t many clubs that Andy Carroll can go to. He needs to be a success this time.”
