Some fans are backing Andy Carroll to follow Slaven Bilic to West Bromwich Albion, if the former West Ham United boss is hired by the Baggies.

The Express & Star reported on Wednesday that Bilic is one of the main contenders to succeed Darren Moore at The Hawthorns, having been interviewed earlier this week.

 

It is approaching two years since West Ham sacked the Croatian, following a disappointing start to the 2017/18 season.

The Hammers had ended his first two campaigns in seventh and 11th respectively, however. And Carroll was a prominent member of Bilic's side, scoring or making 20 goals in 61 appearances.

But the 30-year-old has spent much of the past two seasons absent through injury, leading to his release from a £90,000-a-week contract (Spotrac) at the end of last month.

And with West Brom having lost their top scorer, Dwight Gayle, to Carroll's old club, Newcastle United, at the end of his loan spell, there is space he freed West Ham striker at Baggies.

At least that's what this lot think...

Can't wait for next season Bilic telling James Collins to get it up to Andy Carroll, up the ******* Albion

 

 

 

That said, Carroll is perhaps not Bilic's only potential target...

 

Could Carroll join his former West Ham boss at West Brom?

Have something to tell us about this article?
