West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be pleased with the results that their side is getting during the final stretch of the season and will have been boosted by the news of an injury update.
Andy Carroll had undergone an operation for a hairline fracture he suffered to his ankle in December, however, it appears he is nearing a return to the first-team for their crucial run-in. Indeed, the Daily Mail is reporting that the England striker is set to rejoin the senior side for training this week and the 29-year-old hopes to be in contention for their clash with Stoke City on Monday night.
West Ham has struggled during the season with a number of injuries and his came at an untimely moment, coinciding with Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic, who had both picked up knocks. While he’s a divisive figure in east London, the fact Carroll could return at a crucial part of the campaign has gone down a storm.
The former has taken it in his stride to provide the Hammers with a number of goals and has given the locals faith in their ability to stay in the Premier League. The former Stoke man will also be hoping he can make an impact against his former side.
The return to training of Carroll will be a boost to those West Ham fans in the Tavern, as they look to win as many points as possible to ensure they play top-flight football next season. Carroll had hit good form before his injury setback and the punters will be hoping he can rediscover it quickly should he be involved towards the end of the campaign.
