Carroll fears Liverpool pricing him out of Newcastle return
Carroll would love to return for a second spell at hometown club Newcastle, says the Daily Star.
He left in January 2011 when Liverpool splashed out £35m to make him the most expensive British player.
Toon chief Alan Pardew, who admits his side are lacking a physical presence in attack, would jump at the chance of re-signing him.
Owner Mike Ashley and managing director Derek Llambias are also receptive to the idea but not at Liverpool's £17m valuation even though it would mean an £18m profit on the initial deal.
