Newcastle transfer target Andy Carroll given green light to find new club

The former England international has been given the all clear by a specialist after making a full recovery.

Carroll left West Ham earlier in the summer after his contract expired and there have been rumours about a return to join former club Newcastle.

The Geordie forward started out his career with the Magpies, playing for his hometown club for five years.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is believed to be interested in bringing him back to Tyneside as he looks to increase his attacking options.

After a successful Premier League season with Newcastle in 2010/11, Carroll was snapped up the following summer by Liverpool for a whopping £35m on deadline day.

He endured a difficult three seasons at Anfield, however, and was eventually shipped out on loan to West Ham before signing permanently.

Overall, Carroll has scored 53 goals in the Premier League with his best return the eleven he bagged in his final season at Newcastle.

Newcastle also have an interest in Liverpool’s Harry Wilson but the European champions have not made a decision on the winger’s future as yet.

The Magpies have so far only signed striker Joelinton for £40m but are in need of more attacking reinforcements.

The club have already sold Ayoze Perez to Leicester to £30m and did not sign Salomon Rondon on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell last year.

Even back-up forward Joselu has been sold, leaving Joelinton as the only recognised striker now at the club.

Miguel Almiron will be there to support that attack but he is yet to break his goalscoring duck for the Magpies since joining in January.
