Hammers striker return looking certain

West Ham are now virtually certain that Andy Carroll will return to the match for the game against Spurs.

He is available right now to take his place on the bench for the first time since the summer recurrence of the ankle injury injury which has plagued him for a couple of years or more.

A senior source from inside the club told us: “Everything is going well with Andy and we expect him to be available for the game if selected. He has been training well and there have been no further setbacks.”

Carroll needs to stay fit now as he looks to show himself off ahead of the end of his contract in order to find either a new club or be offered a year’s extension at West Ham.

That hasn’t been entirely ruled out despite his awful injury record although should it happen – and there is definitely no certainty about it – he would be likely to receive an offer of around £50k a week – a big cut on his current £87k.”

  1. Wonder what odds Betway are offering to what will happen with Carroll?

  2. If we get 2\3 games out of him. Before he gets injured AGAIN then great ..because he will get injured AGAIN that’s for sure ..I don’t really class him as a player anymore it’s sunday football stuff with him if he turns up lovely if not no biggy as we play most season s without him anyway…

  3. I could see him going to Newcastle in the jan transfer window and saving them from relegation. On the other hand if he accepted a pay as you play kind of deal similar to what they are offering Declan rice then we should keep him.
