Andy Carroll is close to signing his new four year improved contract at Newcastle United.
Andy Carroll – close to signing new contract
Hughton talked before yesterday’s game at Wolves, and hopes to complete what has been a every good month for the Newcastle club, by getting the new long-term contract for Andy Carroll finally signed.
Discussions are still ongoing with the club, but Hughton believes they are now very close, and the deal should be signed shortly.
Chris said yesterday:
“It’s something that is ongoing,” “He’s a player that we absolutely want to keep and hopefully it’s not too far away.”
“Andy has done well in the first couple of games but he will not get carried away with the hype.” “I have warned him that with any period of a high, there may be a low right round the corner.”
“He is very conscious of not getting carried away with the hype. We’re two games into the season and there’s a lot still left to do.”
Andy played with a slight ankle injury yesterday and added a 4th league goal to his total, and got Newcastle a decent point too, in a game the Magpies had every chance of winning.
But we didn’t, so we’ll take the single point and hope we can get back to our winning ways against Blackpool, in a couple of weeks time at St. James’ Park.
But that game will not be as easy as t looks on paper, as Blackpool were unlucky not the beat a decent Fulham side at Bloomfield Road yesterday, when the London side equalized in the 87th minute.
