There were reports tonight that Andy Carroll is stalling on a move to West Ham, after the Hammers and Liverpool were said to have agreed on a fee of £15M for the England striker.
Andy Carroll – waiting for Newcastle
Andy doesn’t have a future at Liverpool, we all know that, but it seems the Geordie lad would love to return home to Newcastle, but it may be that £15M has priced Andy out of a move back to Newcastle.
Andy played quite well at West Ham and scored seven goals in 23 appearances last season, but Newcastle fans are undecided about whether Newcastle should go after him at £15M.
Here’s the latest voting on our site:
Certainly Alan Pardew and Derek LLambias seem keen to sign the Geordie striker, and he would give Newcastle something different up front, but £15M may be abridge too far for Newcastle.
After all, we are said to have paid just £18M for the five Frenchmen that moved to Newcastle in January.
Andy is injured again, and this time it’s his heel, so he had to pull out of the England squad, and he’s likely to be injured for up to six weeks.
But it seems the ball is now in Newcastle’s court, but we’d be surprised if Newcastle want to pay £15M to bring the Geordie striker back home – but we could be wrong about that.
