Reds step up Carroll pursuit

Newcastle striker Andy Carroll is at the centre of a tug-of-war as the club rejected a second offer from Liverpool for him.

It is understood the Magpies have rebuffed the Reds' new approach after turning down an offer amounting to £30million earlier today for the 22-year-old.

It is understood the Anfield club came back with a higher figure, but that has as yet failed to persuade Newcastle to part with a man who has proved key to their hopes of retaining their Barclays Premier League status.
