Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists Andy Carroll is happy to stay at the club and can fit into the new style of play he is trying to impose at Anfield.
• Hammers bid for Carroll
Carroll is widely expected to leave Liverpool this summer after he struggled to make an impact since joining from Newcastle United for a club-record £35 million in January 2011.
The England international's former club have already made a move to take Carroll back to St James' Park but the deal was rejected by the Reds.
West Ham have also made a £2 million bid to take Carroll on loan until the end of the 2012-13 season with a view to a £16 million permanent switch, if the club avoid relegation.
But Rodgers is adamant the striker, who came off the substitutes' bench in Liverpool's pre-season goalless draw against Tottenham in America on Saturday, is still in his plans for next season.
Reds boss Rodgers said: "Not that I am aware of. Obviously I'll know more when we get back.
"There has been a lot written about Andy, but you saw today he's happy to be here and he's worked very well since he's been here.
"The reality is he's still a Liverpool player, he can fit into how I want to play, and he's happy here. I'm certainly not wishing to push him out of the door.''
