David Gold reassures West Ham fans fears regarding Andy Carroll comeback

The England striker has been injured since February.

West Ham United have suffered with something of a striker shortage in recent weeks. The club have suffered because of long-term problems to both Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll, and a failure to broker certain deals in the transfer market.

However, they recently snapped up Nikica Jelavic and Victor Moses and are also on the brink of welcoming their record signing back to the fold.

Striker Carroll looks set to be on his way back to first-team action.

It has been reported that he might feature against his hometown club Newcastle United on a week Monday.

Carroll’s last game for West Ham came in a 0-0 draw with Southampton in February and has since gone on to have knee surgery and recover from his problem with a game against his beloved Newcastle seemingly on the horizon.

However some fans are concerned about Carroll being rushed back too soon and picking up yet another injury problem.

One even wrote in to West Ham co-chairman David Gold on Twitter yesterday. Gold then responded, assuring the fan that Carroll was ready for his comeback.

So it seems that Carroll will feature against Newcastle later this month, bringing to an end his seven month injury absence.
