It seems that Newcastle fans are not the only ones getting sick of all this news about Andy Carroll leaving Newcastle.
Andy Carroll – staying on Tyneside
It also appears that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has also become very tired of hearing all the talk in the papers about Andy leaving, and getting questions all the time about whether the reports of him leaving are true.
Of course after today’s game at Sunderland, Alan was asked if the reports that Tottenham had offered £30M for Carroll were indeed true.
This is what Alan Pardew said about the big clubs supposedly after the 22 year-old:
“They can put together whatever they like. He is not for sale,”
“I am going to say it one last time, he is not for sale.”
A much more important thing about Andy is whether he will be fit for the home game against Spurs next Saturday, and Alan Pardew said he was hopeful that would be the case.
Andy’s had a troublesome thigh injury that kept him out of today’s Sunderland derby, in which Newcastle were desperately unlikely not to take all 3 points for a second time this season.

We hope that Andy will be able to show Harry Redknapp next Saturday just what he’s missing, because he will not be able to sign the 22 year Geordie striker – that’s a certainty.
Andy is one of six or seven key players that Pardew wants to keep at the club long-term, to build the Newcastle team of the future.
