Andy Carroll is prepared to consider a loan move to another Premier League club ... as long as they are playing in Europe this season.
Carroll's future at Anfield is uncertain following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as manager.
The Magpies wanted to sign the England international on loan with a view to a permanent deal, but Rodgers has insisted there is 'no way' Carroll will be leaving on a temporary basis.
West Ham United were understood to have made a £17million bid for the forward, but a switch to Upton Park would not appear to be on Carroll's agenda (the player favouring European football if he does leave the Reds).
