After scoring a fantastic header in West Ham’s unexpected 2-0 victory over Liverpool, former Newcastle United man Andy Caroll posted this photo on Instagram.
While watching BBC’s Match of the Day, Andy Carroll posted this photo of him watching his post match interview while holding a Newcastle United design mug.
The striker has recently been linked with a return to the North-East and many have suggested that this is the clearest sign of a “come and get me” plea to date.
Either way, it’s certainly not the first time that the #NUFC Twittersphere has reacted with excitement at what seems to be a come and get me plea from a supposed transfer target. Oh, and of course we can’t forget Bafetimbi Gomis’s ominous English lessons.
The Magpies are expected to be back in the market for a striker when the window opens up today, and considering Carroll’s history at the club, and his clear affinity with the fans, he may well be at the top of Steve McClaren’s wish list in the New Year.
West Ham owner, David Sullivan, recently conceded in an interview with Sky Sports that Newcastle United are the only club Andy Carroll would be interested in quitting West Ham for.
Either way, even if this is just wild speculation from our side, its probably the only time we’ll see Newcastle’s name on a cup this season. So enjoy it while you can!
Would you welcome Andy Carroll back to the club? Or do you feel we should be looking elsewhere this January? Let us know in the comment section below.
