Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has refused to clarify Andy Carroll's future at Anfield but gave his full backing to manager Brendan Rodgers.
Carroll has been strongly linked with a move away from Liverpool despite becoming the club's record signing for £35million just last year.
Rodgers, who was appointed as Reds boss earlier this summer, is believed to be willing to allow the striker to leave the club this month and Werner appears comfortable with that scenario.
"The only thing I can say is we will do what's best for the club," he told Sky Sports News.
"At the moment, Andy is on the squad. He was an important member of the English team, he's got a lot of talent and we'll see what happens there.
"Brendan is clearly the leader here and hopefully the question will be answered shortly but at the moment Andy is on the team and we're looking forward to his contributions."
Werner and his fellow members of Fenway Sports Group have shown faith in Rodgers by sacking much-loved manager Kenny Dalglish in May and the chairman has once again defended that move.
"I don't think anybody could have been happy with our performance on the pitch last year," he added.
"No disrespect to Kenny, I think he's an iconic figure for Liverpool and he will always be appreciated for the stability he brought to the club.
"Brendan brings a very thoughtful, modern, attacking philosophy.
"I think our fans will be very delighted with the attacking philosophy that he brings to Liverpool and hopefully we'll see improvement."
Werner also reiterated his commitment to finding a new stadium for Liverpool and called for patience.
Werner said on Monday: "There's actually a call later this afternoon to try and move the ball forward but until we are sure of a solution we don't want to make any announcements and people have been disappointed before.
"There's no-one who would like to put this question behind us more than me but until we are clear about the solution and how it's going to unfold we're going to just say please exercise a bit of patience."
