Andy Carroll has said he has no desire to leave Liverpool after the club tried to exchange him for Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez only a year after his £35m arrival from Newcastle United.

Carroll, who has scored only six times for Kenny Dalglish’s team since becoming Britain’s most expensive footballer 12 months ago, was also linked with a return to Newcastle United earlier in the transfer window. Having produced a battling display in Saturday’s FA Cup win against Manchester United, however, the 23-year-old denied he is unsettled on Merseyside or keen to leave a club where he has failed to cement a regular first-team place.

“I’m just here. I’ve signed a contract here and this is the team I’m playing for,” Carroll said. “I love it here. All the lads are great with me in training and away from the training ground everyone has been great with me as well.”

Liverpool have denied making an offer to exchange Carroll for Tevez but sources elsewhere insist an approach was made. Carroll and his representatives were unaware of the club’s attempt to offload their record signing, prompting disquiet among his advisers. Despite public support for the striker from Dalglish, the interest in Tevez raises doubt about the former Newcastle player’s long-term future at Anfield. He said he had no regrets over his move to Merseyside.

“Not at all. The club has been great with me and I’m enjoying it here. Winning in midweek [against Manchester City in the Carling Cup] and getting to the final and then Man U coming here, beating them and getting through, it’s a great feeling.”
