Andy Carroll became a record signing for West Ham when they paid £15million on May of 2013 to Liverpool in order to secure the services of the 24 years old forward but so far has not been able to even play with his new club as he has been struggling with an ankle injury that has left him in the sidelines for 7 months.

West Ham are fighting in the bottom spots of the Premier League and are in need of their £15 million signing as they are one of the clubs that has managed to score less goals in this season.

They have received a boost recently after hearing news that Carroll has now returned training with the rest of the squad. The head coach of West Ham, Sam Allardyce did not feature Carroll in their match against Liverpool even though he was able to make his return.

“We will get him back as quick as we possibly can, but my position is to take a sensible view. We are in a difficult position at the minute but I can’t panic into putting Andy in too quickly. It is my responsibility to make sure he is there to stay when he comes back onto the field, and not just one or two games’’.
“In the position we’re in at the moment it is extremely tough to resist putting him in. I’d like to put him on the bench at Liverpool, but that would be rather stupid.” said Allardyce
The absence of Carroll has forced Allardyce on playing a number of matches in the Premier League with a formation without any forward or any main attacking outlet, so his return will be a huge boost for the team that are in need of someone that can get them out of the bottom spots of the standings.
