Andy Carroll has overcome the mysterious injury that threatened to end his season – but is now sweating over the resumption of Premier League football and news of Newcastle’s takeover with his contract expiring.
The 31-year-old hasn’t played since mid-January, and boss Steve Bruce said in February that they couldn’t determine what the problem was, although it was related to his hip.
However, we understand that Carroll has been pain free for some time now and is looking forward to a return to training.
Andy Carroll has overcome a mysterious injury that has put him out of action since January
The former English striker signed a one-year deal last August at a low base wage with false incentives and had hoped to win an extension this season.
He has not reached the number of matches required to activate an automatic renewal and with his contract on June 30 we are told that the club must inform him of their intentions before May 16.
It would certainly help Carroll because matches resumed and he could prove his shape and condition. But with the current Premier League season still at stake, Carroll’s future remains questionable.
The 31-year-old has not played enough matches to automatically renew his contract
With owner Mike Ashley negotiating the sale of the club, Carroll’s future is unclear
In addition, the prospect of new Saudi owners arriving in the coming weeks means that all contract negotiations will be suspended, complicating the situation for Carroll and his advisers.
Carroll played 14 games this season without scoring, but was influential during three wins in December, which went a long way in getting the team out of trouble.
In any case, sources have suggested in the short term that Newcastle Carroll would like to show the season if it were to resume.
Other than that, it is not yet certain who will make such decisions in St James’ Park.
