Andy Carroll is reportedly set to make a move to the Major League Soccer at the end of the season. according to reports from England, the 30-year-old could make the move in the summer as his contract expires at the end of the season.

Carroll has endured a torrid spell at West Ham as he has been ravaged by injuries since making the switch from Liverpool seven years ago. It is understood that West Ham are not likely to take the option of triggering the extra two years clause in his contract and would be looking to cut the forward off its wage bill.

Carroll is one of the top earners at the club earning an £80,000 weekly wage and his departure would see the club have enough wage room for another signing. West Ham has been linked to Celta Vigo ace Maxi Gomez and it appears likely that Carroll’s time is up at the London stadium.

Carroll is still a decent player but it would be difficult for any Premier League club to take a punt on the striker given his poor injury record. He is also a bit young for the MLS as the league is still considered a retirement league by many in England.

The 30-year-old recently had surgery on a persistent knee injury which ruled him out of for the season leaving Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez as the only senior strikers in the team.  There is no doubt that West Ham fans have fond memories of the hulky striker who on his day can be a handful for most opposition defences.

However, it could be time for both parties to separate mutually as the forward would be looking to recuperate fully ahead of next season.  Carroll has scored 33 goals in 126 appearances for the Hammers.
