Sky Sports have confirmed today that Andy Carroll’s future at West Ham is hanging in the balance after a training ground ‘bust up’ with David Moyes – fuelling yet more rumours that he could make a long-awaited return to Newcastle United this summer.
After failing to be brought on during West Ham’s 4-1 defeat on Sunday, Carroll was pictured walking away from the substitutes bench before the final whistle – leaving Moyes furious and set to ‘deal with him’ in training on Monday.
Sky have since confirmed that the pair were involved in a ‘furious bust-up’ yesterday morning, ending in Carroll being sent home early and Moyes seeking to formally discipline the striker:

As far as links to Newcastle go, they were inevitable, reemerging this morning after claims that Carroll could now be sold by the Hammers this summer.
It always felt like he could return to Tyneside one day, but as time goes on and injuries continue to cripple his career, it feels less and less likely to happen.
He’s 29, has recently missed four months after ANOTHER ankle injury and has managed just 14 appearances this season as a result.
A part of me would like to see him back, but in reality he could be another expensive mistake. This response below from NUFC fans probably sums up my thoughts on that matter:
I'd have a fit, cheap Andy Carroll back but he's far from both those things
