Carroll ‘agrees’ move to NUFC – Personal terms & length of contract decided – The Times

According to the Times’ Oliver Kay, Andy Carroll has ‘agreed personal terms’ ahead of a potential move to Newcastle United, with an ‘initial ONE-year contact‘ lined up.

With this and the fact he’s available on a free in mind, it seems like 90% of the deal is complete, with the move now likely to hinge on his ability to pass a medical.

Here’s what Olivery Kay – the Times’ chief football correspondent – has had to say on his potential move to Newcastle in the last few moments, suggesting personal terms and length of contract are already agreed:

With the club keen, Carroll desperate to return (he’s been happy to take a ‘huge’ pay cut by all accounts) and Bruce an admirer, it seems everything is in place for him to complete return…provided he does pass a medical.

That will be the big test, but, if he’s fit to sign and seeming in decent shape following ankle surgery, I think this is a deal that could work very nicely for all parties.

It looks like it’s happening!

  1. Could be a great bit of business as AC is a huge handful for any defender when fit. Even as a sub in the second half to cause havoc… seems a no brainier.. having said that… the anti-Newcastle “themag” blog will no doubt pick a million holes in it.. as they do anything Newcastle. It must be ran by makems just to wind us up.


  2. We must have an extra bed in the physio’s room. So that’s where the money’s gone.

    A fit Carroll will cause many problems for defences, great to see him return HWTL

    Big problem I see is that a squad limited to 25 players has no place for an eternal crock.
    Dont do it..this could come back to bite “The Bruce ” on the 4r5e.
