Alan Shearer sends message to Andy Carroll following his deadline day move to NUFC

Alan Shearer has welcomed Andy Carroll back to Newcastle United following his deadline day return to the club.

The 6ft 4′ striker has signed an ‘initial’ one-year deal with the club, becoming our fifth signing of the summer following moves for Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth; who also signed today.

Here’s what the Newcastle United legend has had to say about Carroll after the ‘big man’ signed just moments before the 5pm deadline:

Carroll has confirmed that he’s now fit after recovering from ankle surgery this summer, but it’s believed he will take a few weeks to regain full match fitness, meaning we may not see him in action until next month.

It’s another risky signing based on his recent injury record, but a pay as you play deal and one-year contract makes sense from a financial perspective – especially when he’s arrived on a free.
