Report – Returning Geordie To Extend For Another Year


Lee Ryder is reporting that Andy Carroll is due to sign a one-year extension to remain at Newcastle next season. He recently signed an extension until the end of this season as his contract was due to expire on June 30th.

Andy came on for Joelinton late in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United. That was his first action since the third round FA Cup replay against Rochdale on January 14th.

With Carroll basically on a pay as you play deal, there is little financial risk in bringing him back for another season. However, he will eat up a squad place that could go to waste if he suffers another long-term injury.

It was going swimmingly for the Geordie this season since he made his return to St James Park against Brighton in September. Andy was only unavailable for two matches due to niggles until the new year.

That appeared to be the case when he suffered a hip injury in January, which was said to be minor. However, he just couldn’t get himself right and was out for two months before the season was suspended in March.

According to Bruce, the long break has done the trick, and he’s looking really sharp in training. This is what Bruce said about the striker recently:

“The break has got Andy right again.

“I shouldn’t say that but it’s the best I’ve seen him look.

“I hope that hasn’t put a jinx on him.”

Carroll has yet to score during his second stint at St James Park, but he’s chipped in with four assists.

He’s also taken on a mentoring role for some of the new signings and younger players. That could prove beneficial once the takeover is confirmed in what will be a transition period for the club.

What Will The Result Be Against Aston Villa On Wednesday?

    Lads,
    From previous, we’re as safe as houses now, we’ll beat Villa tomorrow night and job done, Brighton aren’t going to catch us either over 38 games. Love to see W Ham and Villa go down, I like Bournemouth.

    government can’t win with the press. If they lock down they endlessly whinge on saying when are we coming out and when we start to come out it’s like why are we coming out. Media do my head in.

    i agree i’d keep him about if anything he can show any newcomers what Newcastle is all about and if he is happy to stay on same terms he will always be a handful if he stays fit and that always is the question.

    Jib,
    He’s an excellent impact sub when fit, how many times is that though. Besides you want your impact subs challenging for a first team place, not limited to fifteen minute cameos.

    Mund, Jib,

    I agree with you both on this one. I’d keep Andy for another year, manage his fitness carefully and see what he can do. He still has an eye for the game and some nice touches, but we can’t expect him to give us 90 minutes every week.

    Sounds like a PR move by the new owners, keep the local lad on but only for a season.

    Waste of money for me, he wont be fit for 75% of the games but not the end of the world given the bigger changes coming (hopefully).

    I can’t believe he’s got another year, he hasn’t done much to warrant it, and let’s face it he could injure himself putting his socks on

    I’m a bit of a fan myself mate. Read them when I was a kid and done the books a few times through now, and a few of Tolkein’s others. Even tried the Silmarillion at one point. I generally read SF more than fantasy, but those stories are epic.

    A curious question to ask: if KV has his support for Newcastle questioned because he doubts the veracity of take-over claims… why now isn’t ‘Mund’ being similarly cross-examined for claiming he *did not* want to see Newcastle win a cup this season.

    According to Mund, he’d rather Newcastle not win the FA cup this season, if he wasn’t able to personally attend the occasion.

    GP,
    I wasn’t interested in reading the Hobbit whatsover and I gave the book away that had been lying around a flat we were renting in Darwin. The lad forgot to take it so I read it after all, couldn’t believe that I tried to give it away. Fantastic books. Was peed off with the films mind, they made each book a separate film but turned the shortest book in to three films. I refused to watch them after the first one.

    Really mate that was said moons back.

    Let me clarify I would rather them not win this season as so much crap would be thrown at it because of the situation and just our luck to win a cup and not be able to be there. But saying all that of course is still be over the moon if it happened.

    Also If I didn’t believe we were about to be took over and we would be stuck with Ashley then it would be different.

    We are about to be born into a new era and it won’t be long before we have something to shout about and that in fact would be better than winning the FA cup and I’d rather it be under the new regime rather than have Ashley say he won something at Newcastle.

    It’s still on my shelf, but I found it incredibly laborious. I feel like it’s all just details that we don’t really need to know with basically no plot or characters. Other than that, Tolkein writes wonderfully.

    Mund, “moons” would suggest months back—it was only days ago. I myself, cannot understand any logic for not wanting to see Newcastle win the FA cup this season.

    Anyway, gonna get told off for book chat soon so that’s all on that from me. Brighton and Leicester was intriguing. Brighton still looking like a very well drilled team. Spurs vs West Ham in a minute, would love to see West Ham go down but at the same time it’s always nice seeing Mourinho unhappy. Maybe a draw would be best here…
