Local reports have that the Andy Carroll return to Newcastle United has been completed. It was also a deal that they had to get done today due to a Premier League rule that clubs cannot leave a squad spot open for a free agent if they have available senior members on the books.
This deal is now done. Welcome home Big Andy. If #nufc can get 25-30 games out of him it could be the bargain of the season. He will score goals if he plays. Good thing is the deal is incentivised for him to get and stay fit
