Andy Carroll wants to stay a Newcastle United player and isn’t keen at all on any move away from Newcastle.
Andy Carroll - wants to stay on Tyneside
And the great news for Newcastle fans, is that the striker has received the all-clear from a Swedish thigh specialist to resume training, and he will do that today on Tyneside.
We suppose he could be ready for the game at Fulham on Wednesday night, but that may be jumping the gun a little.
And Mike Ashley has again done the right thing and just turned down a £30M bid from Liverpool for the lad, and we have to hope there’s no way Mike will accept any offer for the local hero.
Carroll is back in Newcastle today, and a source close to the player told the Evening Chronicle today:
“He’s in Newcastle and he’s going to be at the training ground today.”
“That should tell you everything you need to know about whether he’s staying or going.”
“He’s tired of saying how much he wants to stay.”
That’s only one reason the local lad is a hero to Newcastle fans, because he only wants to play for his home town club – the famous Newcastle United – and we love players who want to do that.
And of course if Newcastle do accept the offer from Liverpool, Andy could technically turn down the move down, even if he was offered £75K/week from Liverpool.
But he shouldn’t be put in that position and Mike Ashley can gain a few friends on Tyneside today by rejecting all bids for big Andy.
And of course Newcastle will renegotiate Andy’s current deal, once this all calms down a bit.
