West Ham United have received a timely boost as one of their long-term absentees is thought to be edging closer to a return.
The striker is thought to be progressing well and is expected to make a return to the training pitch during the week, although it still remains to be seen when he can get on the pitch for Manuel Pellegrini.
“Andy Carroll is progressing really nicely and he’s going to start doing some work on the pitches this week, so he’s making really good progress,” Collinge told the club’s official website.
The 29-year-old required surgery on the ankle that has been troubling him for a long period of time and has so far been unavailable for West Ham during their terrible start to the Premier League.
West Ham will have been boosted by the positive news that Carroll will be returning to training imminently.
The Hammers have had a torrid time in the Premier League, having lost all four matches so far, whilst only finding the back of the net twice.
The match with Everton has certainly come too quickly for the £9million-rated striker, as per Transfermarkt, however, it should not be too long before Pellegrini can call upon him to try and get the goals and take them out of the relegation zone.
