Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that he has not thought about recalling Andy Carroll in January, despite the Reds' current injury crisis to their forwards.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that the thought of bringing striker Andy Carroll back to the club in January has not crossed his mind.

The 23-year-old, who is currently on a season-long loan at West Ham United, is believed to have an agreement in his temporary deal which states that he can be recalled by the Reds in the winter window.

The Merseyside club are currently in a crisis with regards to available forwards following the injury to Fabio Borini, who is likely to be sidelined for three months with a foot injury.

"[Bringing Carroll back] isn't something I have considered, to be honest," said Rodgers. "Andy has obviously gone out to get games. We have people watching when he plays and they report back on how he is doing. But with Fabio's injury just coming up we will assess it from there."

Meanwhile, the Reds are preparing to face Reading at Anfield this Saturday.
