St James’ Park side could welcome back Upton Park star ‘on the cheap’.
Newcastle United have been offered the chance to re-sign West Ham striker Andy Carroll in a cut-price deal in January according to the Chronicle.
The Magpies are sitting at the wrong end of the table and could do with fresh striking options and Alan Pardew may be open to a move to welcome back England man Carroll.
West Ham are keen to offload the former Liverpool man and will accept as little as £6m for the 25 year old and owner Mike Ashley may feel that’s a price worth paying.
Though Carroll has had his fair share of injury problems he is nearing a return and may be an ideal January signing for the struggling St James’ Park side.
Senegalese forward Papiss Cisse has ended his goal drought this term, netting four goals already in Premier League action this term, but new signing Emmanuel Rivière is still to get off the mark and with Newcastle United still without a win this season there is every chance Pardew will look to improve his squad when the transfer window reopens.
Carroll netted 31 goals in 80 league fixtures for Newcastle United before being sold to Liverpool in a £35m deal back in January 2011.
