Newcastle United confirms Andy Carroll capture

Newcastle have confirmed signing of former striker Andy Carrol on an initial one-year deal. 

The former England international ended his seven-year stay at West Ham at the end of last season, and will now head St. James Park for the new season. 

The striker confirmed the move by sharing a video of his moments with the club, with the caption 'I'm coming home'.

 

 

“It feels very good. My friends and family are here, and it’s the club that I support – it is home,” said Carroll after putting pen to paper. 

“I enjoyed the time I spent here, and hopefully I can carry on where I left off. When I left eight-and-a-half years ago, I was scoring goals and I was enjoying my football. It’s been a pretty tough time since then, and I just want to get back to that.

“I know it’s home. I’ve played here, I’ve spoken to the fans – I am a fan – and my family is here. For me to get back to where I was, I think this is the only place for me,"

Carroll – who scored 33 goals during his first spell with the club – becomes head coach Steve Bruce’s fifth addition of the summer, following the arrivals of Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth.
