Andy Carroll’s career at West Ham United is surely all over, isn’t it? The striker had to undergo surgery for his troublesome ankle injury that has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
However, it appears he could be about to make an interesting move in the summer and follow in the footsteps of some other former England internationals.
What’s the News?
According to The Times, Carroll could be set for a move to America and join an MLS side once his contract expires at the London Stadium.
It is not stated whether there is any interest from sides across the pond in the 30-year-old, whilst it remains to be seen if anyone will be willing to take a risk on the injury-prone £80,000-a-week forward.
There is no doubt that Carroll’s time at West Ham is set to come to an end in the summer, however, whether he will be heading across the Atlantic is something that could be questioned.
Yes, he can be a real handful when he is fit and could be a really useful addition for a club in the MLS when firing, however, the report by The Times does not exactly fill you with confidence about his possible destination.
However, what will be good news for the Hammers is that his £80,000-a-week wages will finally be off the books and they will not have to continue to hear about his injury problems that have caused them frustrations over the years.
With that money becoming available in the summer, it may allow for West Ham to be able to target some new additions in the upcoming transfer window and provide them with the funds to make a high-profile signing or two.
