There was news yesterday that Newcastle were once again interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham, and bringing the Gateshead-born striker back to Tyneside.
Andy Carroll – while at Newcastle
And it just so happens that Andy and West Ham are taking part in the same tournament that Newcastle United are also participating in down under in New Zealand over the coming week, with the first games tomorrow night.
And there is news coming out of New Zealand that the two clubs are negotiating a deal that could see Andy Carroll become a Newcastle United player again.
The news was in the People yesterday from Alan Oliver, that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was interested in signing the former Newcastle striker and that Newcastle were willing to pay as much as £15M for Carroll – which seems to us to be a high fee.
Since Andy left Newcastle his career has been on a downward spiral, and he has never been able to reproduce the form he showed in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle.
But we also believe he could re-ignite his career if he did return to Newcastle, but one worry we have is his poor injury record since he left Tyneside – and he’s missed a lot of playing time with a number of different injuries while at West Ham.
But it seems that Newcastle are still trying to sign players we need, with Andy Carroll presumably one of those targets, and there is news that Newcastle may be back in for Clement Grenier who is officially available for transfer and will leave Lyon this summer.
