Andy Carroll could be set to train with West Ham United until he finds another club, according to a report published by reliable Irons source Claret and Hugh. 

The striker’s current contract with the Hammers came to an end this summer and it is unlikely that the club will end up offering him a new one.

The 30-year-old has spent more time on the sidelines through injury than on the pitch and he struggled to make an impact for West Ham this season when called upon.

All in all, he made 14 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring just one goal.

Carroll joined the Hammers initially on loan from Liverpool in 2012 before the deal was made permanent the following summer.

In total, he played 142 times for West Ham in all competitions, scoring 34 goals. A product of the Newcastle United youth development system, Carroll was once rated as one of the best up and coming English talents.

He has however been unable to live up to his potential due to having a career ravaged by injuries.

West Ham outcast Carroll is unlikely to attract offers from many Premier League clubs due to his injury record.

With his chances of an England recall seemingly all but over, he should seriously consider a move to a less physically demanding League such as Major League Soccer or the Chinese Super League.

Carroll has nothing left to prove. He was a quality player a decade ago but sadly his body never allowed him to make the most of his potential.

The West Ham man can however carry on playing at the highest level for another 2-4 years. A less physically demanding League would reduce the amount of strain on his body.
