Newcastle plan fresh move for West Ham striker Carroll

Newcastle United haven't dropped interest in bringing Liverpool striker Andy Carroll back to Tyneside in the summer.

The Evening Chronicle says Carroll would be “open” to the lure of a return home this summer – if presented with the opportunity.

The Geordie is currently on-loan at West Ham United, which has an agreement with Liverpool over a permanent deal, though nothing exists with the player.

The bonus for Newcastle – who were prepared to offer £12m for the player last summer after an initial loan – is this transfer fee is likely to come down again this summer if Liverpool fail to sell him to West Ham.

Yet a fresh loan move to Tyneside, with a view to a permanent deal, would also be a possibility again if Newcastle were prepared to pay some of his wages.
