Andy Carroll prepared to stay at West Ham only if Allardyce is still in charge

Andy Carroll prepared to stay at West Ham only if Allardyce is still in charge

Daily Mail informs England striker Andy Carroll will only agree to join West Ham on a permanent basis if Sam Allardyce remains the club’s manager.

Big Sam’s contract is due to expire next summer, and West Ham hierarchy has been reluctant to offer him a new deal unless the club’s Premier League status is secured. The London side is believed to have agreed a transfer fee of £17 million with Liverpool for loanee Carroll, but the striker is yet to agree of making a deal permanent.

The 24-year-old player holds Allardyce in big respect after he offered the player an escape route from his nightmare at Anfield. Carroll has also formed a close relationship with West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan whom he has been playing with at Newcastle.

Should Big Sam be sacked Carroll may opt to make a return to Newcastle, as Toons’ boss Alan Pardew would welcome him back with open arms.
