Newcastle hint at summer bid for Liverpool FC flop Andy Carroll

Newcastle hint at summer bid for Liverpool FC flop Andy Carroll Newcastle could make a move to re-sign Andy Carroll from Liverpool this summer, managing director Derek Llambias has suggested. Carroll left Newcastle for Liverpool two years ago for a British record £35million, but he has endured a disappointing spell on Merseyside and was shipped out on loan to West Ham last summer. The temporary switch reportedly contains a £17million clause that would allow the Hammers to sign the England international on a permanent basis, but a return to the North East could be more appealing to Carroll following his recent 'Home sweet home' tweet. With West Ham admitting they will wait until the end of the season before making a decision on whether to try and keep hold of Carroll, Llambias has now fuelled speculation about a summer bid for the forward, insisting he still has a “bit of a soft spot” for the England international. He told the Newcastle Chronicle: “He’s a character and he’s getting older and more mature – and he’s stronger. “It’s unlucky what has happened at West Ham [with injuries], but he scored a great goal at the weekend. “He’s still got a house up here. Andy was part and parcel of our growth.” One man hoping Carroll does complete a permanent move to West Ham, however, is captain Kevin Nolan, who also played with the forward at Newcastle. Nolan told reporters: “Everyone at West Ham has really enjoyed working with Andy — and we all believe there is no better place for him to be than at our club. “He’s in one of the best cities in the world, playing with lads who want to play with him. “He was probably a bit harshly treated by Liverpool and I think he feels hard done by with all that’s happened there. “I think most Liverpool fans were shocked by what happened to him in pre-season, after the way he came into his own with some of his performances towards the end of last season. “But he still loves Liverpool and he has the hunger to prove to everyone there that he is good enough to play there. “No one has spoken about what happens when his loan spell with us is up but everyone in our dressing-room will want Andy to stay beyond the end of this season.”
