Carroll returns to Newcastle United on one-year deal

Newcastle United have announced the signing of their former striker Andy Carroll on an initial one-year deal.

Carroll signed a 12-month contract at St James' Park on transfer deadline day, eight-and-a-half years after leaving for Liverpool in a £35m deal.

McCoist, who previously played at Sunderland and Scotland, is convinced that Carroll could turn out to be a great summer addition and raved about his qualities.

"My friends and family are here, and it's the club I support - it is home".

Steve Bruce could have up to £30m left in his Newcastle United transfer kitty to spend in the January transfer window, it has been claimed.

"I just want him to stay fit". He's since shared his delight on social media tweeting "I'm Coming Home!" "What an exciting player for the Newcastle fans".

He said: "He [Carroll] was desperate - a bit like myself, I suppose - to come back". "He is very excited to be home", the manager, who moved to Newcastle from Sheffield Wednesday in July, said.

Carroll can be a useful alternative off the bench if he gets back to fitness, but his best days are long behind him.

The former England worldwide came through the club's academy and went on to make 90 appearances for Newcastle across all competitions, scoring 33 goals and claiming 21 assists.

However, it remains to be seen the exact amount of money Newcastle choose to release for Bruce to spend in the new year.

Carroll is the fifth player to join the club since Bruce's appointment, following in the footsteps of record capture Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth.

Such arrivals have failed to derail plans from supporters' groups to boycott Sunday's televised Premier League home game against Arsenal and stage a city-centre protest march against Ashley's stewardship.

Their opponents have been one of the busiest sides in the summer transfer market so far, making a club-record signing of their own in Nicolas Pepe, as well as signing Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid and Kieran Tierney from Celtic.
