It is one of the least surprising transfer stories of the summer, but that still hasn’t stopped a number of Newcastle on from drooling over the prospect of Andy Carroll returning to Tyneside this summer. According to the Chronicle, is interested in signing the 30-year-old on a free transfer after he was released by West Ham at the end of last . Carroll is a Geordie and a Newcastle fan and although he walked out on his boyhood club to join back in 2011, he could surely still do a job for in the next term. Although Carroll’s injury record is horrific and there’s a good chance that he’ll miss parts of the 2019/20 campaign with whoever his next club is, the impact that he can make is more than any of Newcastle’s current strikers. Carroll is a proven entity and someone who will give 100 per cent for the club. Newcastle fans have every right to be happy with his potential return, as long as he isn’t handed a massive wage and can stay relatively fit.
