Andy Carroll will play no part in the Premier League campaign in August according to Hammers Chairman David Gold who said he is hopeful he will be ready for action in early September.
Gold tweeted “Andy Carroll is training hard and getting stronger. We are hopeful that he will be available early September. dg”
He has been out of action with a knee injury since the match against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium. He required surgery which has essentially rebuilt his knee.
Carroll is back in full training but needs to work on his match fitness.
