Hammers talk on AC Newcastle link

andy-carroll_3354672West Ham have dismissed speculation thatย Andy Carroll will be loaned to Newcastle or any other club.

But were there to be a firm offer for the striker to come in before the window closes the club would consider the possbility of a permanent move.

Speculation arose over the weekend that Rafa Benitez may attempt to take the former striker back “home” for the season but sources inside West Ham have dismissed such a possibility out of hand.

ClaretandHugh was told this morning (Mon): “What would be the point of that. He could get finally clear of injuries and score ย goals and be worth victories to us.

A loan would be no use to us at all but an offer for any player is always looked at and the situation is no different with Andy Carroll.”

Essentially, however, there is no mileage in the weekend speculation with imagination appearing to ein out over the reality.

Our source said: “There has been no enquiry.”

  1. Can’t see Rafa going for Carroll. I watched Magpies yesterday & they looked poor. If we can’t get a result against them we are in trouble. Mind you Rafa is after transfers & by the time we play them they might have plugged some gaps. If they don’t he will be on his bike. So will be available for when Bilic gets sacked lol

  2. Its all right Kevin ! He’s safe ๐Ÿ˜
    For now ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. ‘He could get finally clear of injuries and score goals and be worth victories to us.’ …..but then again….umm!

  4. Just accept it lads,we are lumbered with him for good.Another two seasons of Kev telling us how amazing he is ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Tend to agree Rads.No club no mattrr how desperate would go near him.Would like to see his CV when he applies for a job after football. LOL
      Let them eat cake.

  5. Oh ye of little faith. This will be the season he proves you all wrong. Oops- think I took to many of those pills this morning.

  6. Should this happen I will happily offer my services to pack his bags, drive him up there, drop his bags off and give him a score out my own pocket so he can have a pint or two ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

  7. It will be the day he pยฃsses off somewhere else!

  8. Please someone anyone buy him.China America anyone will do but someone buy him.

  9. Watch it lads ! Have a pop at the players and you will be visited by the player protection society ๐Ÿ˜‚ bradders is in dire need of some cake GW ๐Ÿ˜‚ better give a piece to both of them lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. There’s a desperation here.

    The investment over the last few years, in spite of the fact that he has only played in a third of the league games he could have, has left the owners and Slav in a no win situation, anxiously hoping (but not believing in) an injury free run of games.

    I can see Sakho leaving this window to Italy or France, as I don’t think his relationship with Slav is very positive.

    All of our little peas are in one basket.

    Ho, hum!

    • I thought that to Marko , I thought he wouldn’t play him at all the Way he had been holding him back! He’s playing him now and has been building him into games for match fitness !
      A fit sakho is a class act and the pea will love playing around him so I think he will stay and soon be starting games , I hope so anyway , Carroll will be bit part and managed IMO but he will probably break sooner than later , Martinez will be called upon , week and a half to go , it will be busy busy in and outs , just don’t bring in stocking fillers its quality we need in depth not as we have right now , will it happen ? ? โ˜บ
