A senior West Ham insider has this morning completely rubbished a story marked Exclusive by Andy Dillion in the Sun newspaper which suggested that the Hammers were about to perform an incredible U-turn on Andy Carroll.
The Sun published a quote they claimed was from a club insider which said: “There’s an argument for it. Any deal would be structured completely differently to the current one. A minimal basic salary plus heavily incentivised payments in return for starts and goals and things like that. That would put the onus on him to be fit and ready.
“There is sympathy for the player. The club has grown tired of all the setbacks but if he can stay fit and it costs West Ham next to nothing, there’s not much to lose. There have been early discussions about it at the club. But if I were Andy or advising him, I’d probably be thinking it would be wise to stay at West Ham.”
However, our senior club source speaking exclusively to Claret and Hugh this morning by Email said “The story is untrue and is based on Zero facts”
