Liverpool have rejected an inquiry from Aston Villa for £35million striker Andy Carroll.

The Midlands club were prepared to offer Darren Bent – a reported target for Kop boss Kenny Dalglish – as part of the deal.

But the Scot is adamant he won’t allow Carroll to leave, despite his poor form.

With fellow striker Luis Suarez banned after his race row with Patrice Evra, Dalglish is short of firepower.

That was highlighted on Saturday as Liverpool stuttered to a 0-0 draw at home to Stoke.

But according to the Sunday Express, Dalglish gave short shrift to Villa’s enquiry and is confident England striker Carroll will repay his huge transfer fee.

The former Newcastle man has scored just four goals since arriving last January, two of which were in the Premier League.

He has struggled to adapt to Liverpool’s style of play and was left on the bench against Stoke as Dirk Kuyt was given his chance up front.

But the Dutchman has yet to register in the league this season and Liverpool’s struggles in front of goal look set to continue.
