Newcastle United are keen to take Andy Carroll back to St James’ Park, according to the Mirror.
The twenty-six year old was sold by Newcastle to Liverpool for £35m back in January 2011 – a then record for a British player.
In two and half years on the books of the Merseyside club, Carroll played just fifty-eight times scoring eleven goals.
He was sent out on loan to West Ham United for the 2012/13 campaign, signing for them on a permanent basis at the end of that season.
In total, he has played only sixty-three matches for the Hammers after continuously struggling with injury, scoring fifteen times.
He was by far at his most prolific during his time in the North East, while
internationally he has been capped nine times for England, scoring twice.
However he has not appeared for his country in over three years, and can be backed at 20/1 to make Roy Hodsgon’s squad for Euro 2016.
