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.
