Report: West Ham to offer Andy Carroll a new contract

West Ham could reportedly offer Andy Carroll a new contract to stay at the London Stadium.

The Hammers signed him for £15million (BBC) back in 2013 from Liverpool and his contract is due to expire this summer.

But the Sun reports that West Ham are considering a new deal for the 30-year-old.

It is understood that any potential contact would be structured differently due to his horrendous record of injuries, with a “minimal basic salary plus heavily incentivised payments in return for starts and goals.”

Carroll has been plagued by injuries throughout his career and made just 14 first-team appearances across all competitions this season.

TBR’s View:

Carroll has been a decent servant for West Ham, with 34 goals in 142 games across all competitions.

But this summer is surely the perfect time to show him the exit doors when his contract expires and it seems bizarre to keep him on.

Manuel Pellegrini has a talented group of players that need to be pushing for European football and the colossus striker is too injury-prone to play a major role moving forward.

There are already a number of striker options at the London Stadium and they should perhaps even consider signing another to improve their squad.
