West Ham owner says Andy Carroll isn’t going to Newcastle (or anywhere else) in January
West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has made clear that Andy Carroll isn’t moving to Newcastle United, or indeed anywhere else, in the January transfer window.
Responding to the latest wave of headlines linking Carroll with a move back to Tyneside, Sullivan is adamant after all of the Geordie striker’s injury problems that now he is fit he’s not going to let him go out on loan or leave on the cheap.
Making his comeback as an injury time substitute against Aston Villa in their last Premier League match, Andy Carroll almost won the game with two great efforts on goal, one of them only denied by a ‘World class save’ from Guzan according to his manager Paul Lambert.
With Valencia and Sakho playing so well, then people have put two and two together to suggest that West Ham will trade in Andy Carroll now.
However, in an interview with independent West Ham website ClaretandHugh, David Sullivan made clear that the former Newcastle striker is not going anywhere;
“He (Andy Carroll) is a very important member of the squad, he was sensational when he came on against Aston Villa.”
The Andy Carroll to Newcastle story seems to be a regular lazy favourite whenever the papers need to fill a space and there’s no way West Ham will let him go on the cheap and no way Mike Ashley would go close to the wages that he is on…apart from that we can expect to see Carroll in a black and white shirt very soon!
