Andy Carroll backed for Toon return

Newcastle United are looking into a deal to bring Andy Carroll back to his hometown club.

Newcastle’s newly appointed boss Steve Bruce wants at least two new strikers in to bolster their attacking options, having lost Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez this summer.

The Magpies are closing in on a club record deal for Hoffenheim striker Joelinton, but Bruce wants more and Carroll has emerged as an option.

30-year-old Carroll is available on a free transfer having left West Ham United at the end of the season and a move back to Newcastle is believed to appeal.

Carroll left Newcastle in 2011 for Liverpool in a £35million deal, but his time on Merseyside did not get to plan and he joined West Ham just 18-months later.

Carroll’s deal at West Ham expired in the summer, and they parted company and now he is looking at his options, which include moving abroad – with interest in the Far East and America, but the chance to continue playing in the Premier League for at least one more season is certain to appeal.

Bookmakers believe there is a real chance with Ladbrokes making him 5/4 to make the move.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Carroll’s fallen down the West Ham pecking order and it looks as though Bruce might just bring him back to Newcastle.”
