Andy Carroll For Sale In January – Newcastle Interested

The Mail is reporting today that West Ham will put Andy Carroll up for sale in January, and that he could even make a return to Newcastle United – his home town club.

Andy Carroll Newcastle -career

Andy Carroll – while at Newcastle

The news is that Newcastle would be prepared to take Andy back to Tyneside for a fee in the region of £8M, but that he would have to drop his wage demands – he is said to be getting a massive £85K/week at West Ham – where he signed a massive six year deal sixteen months ago.

West Ham have signed Ecuador striker Enner Valencia and  Metz striker Diafra Sakho in the summer, and Sakho again scored yesterday in the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United, and both strikers have looked good so far this season.

It seems that Newcastle would be interested in taking Andy back, but a loan deal would probably be the best way, at least initially, and Newcastle could gauge how well he does at Newcastle, before possibly making the deal permanent next summer.

Newcastle sold Andy to Liverpool for a massive £35M in January of 2011 to Liverpool, but since then the 6′ 4″ striker has been continually plagued by injury, and he missed half of last season through injury and has not played a game so far this season – due to injury.

It’s hardly been a  good deal for West Ham,  for a player who is on such huge wages at the east London club.

Newcastle will attempt to get a striker in over the January transfer window, since scoring goals has been one of  Newcastle’s weakness so far this season.

Alan Pardew is known to be keen on bringing Andy back home, but whether Newcastle would still be interested in Carroll should Pardew be fired as the Newcastle manager, is a good question.

What do you think?

    This will happen

    We had everything sorted and wrapped up to sign Andy Carroll early in the last window until he got injured.

    Please remember this when we sign him in January

    1 million percent!!!

    Eight million for an injury-prone man whose lifestyle left a lot to be desired when he was with us, is to say the least ludicrous. Could it be that Pardew’s set that hare running to test the water with Mikey boy and if successful, revert to hopeful long punts goalwards? No thanks.

    Far better use that money to buy an experienced CB.

    As far as Mikey boy being supportive of him, was he?

    Of course he was, just as supportive as your boss asking what he/ she can do to help you overcome poor performance.

    Pardew’s putting a brave face on things and I suspect he’s in denial, oblivious to the precariousness of his position.

    Nonesense, hopefully. More to the point, is there anything constructive we can learn from the 16 goals our combined u-16 and u-18s shipped against Liverpool counterparts yesterday? Wouild surely be an issue if there weren’t bigger problems further up the food chain.

    £8m? That’s a lot of money for a backward step.
    Ashley may be thinking it will keep the Geordies happy but he will be wrong.
    Take the £8m, put another £2-3 m on top and buy a great central defender – that would make more sense.

    Tell you what. …Bet this happens !

    Mentioned a few days ago that a lad I know well told me Andy viewed his mates house in Jesmond that is up for sale. I have heard all the rumours before and yes it could just be Andy buying property in Newcastle for an investment.

    I can see this happening just so Ash can bragg and make himself think he is great that he made a huge profit. Closely followed by Pards who will say Andy wad desperate to come back and he is a much better player now, we are so lucky to be able to sign the England CF…….
