According to reports from the Chronicle, Newcastle United are not interested in acquiring the services of Andy Carroll.
Newcastle United clearly need to recruit a new striker at the moment and sensational reports had emerged recently claiming that the Magpies were keen on bringing back Andy Carroll to St. James’ Park.
Carroll was a cult figure at Newcastle United before his then British record £35million move to Liverpool back in 2012 but the striker has endured a struggle with injuries as well as poor form since his departure from St. James’ Park.
Now at West Ham, Carroll is struggling with fitness related problems once again and with the Hammers having signed Javier Hernandez, the England international could be made surplus to requirements at the London Stadium.
Therefore, there have been talks that Carroll could be heading back to Newcastle on a loan deal but the Chronicle have provided an update claiming that the transfer will not be taking place.
Following the arrival of Joselu, manager Rafael Benitez is not looking to sign another physically imposing attacker and in addition, West Ham are said to be not open to entertaining any loan bids for the 28-year-old.
