Andy Carroll looks booked to remain at West Ham until the summer AT LEAST!
Reports this morning that a battle royal between Sunderland and Newcastle is underway for his signature this month brought a cool response from the Irons.
The Mirror reported we “are open to selling their £15million record signing – for £18m – with North East pair Newcastle and Sunderland ready to snap the 26-year-old up.”
They, of course, pointed out we have to sell to buy and that letting £90,000-a-week go would reduce their wage bill by a significant amount and give them room for manoeuvre in the transfer market.
However, commenting directly to ClaretandHugh our most senior Hammers source made it clear that Sunderland would be of no interest to AC.
But he said that possibility of him moving at all in the current window is very remote declaring: “There is no way he’d go to Sunderland, or that the club could afford him, but you never know with Newcastle although the possibility is very small.”
