Andy Carroll may not play again this season after undergoing surgery to repair a hairline fracture in his foot.
The West Ham striker hasn’t played since coming off the bench on January 4 [vs Tottenham] in a five-minute cameo, having picked up the injury against West Brom two days earlier. David Moyes initially suggested that tests [MRI scan] had come back clear sparking rumours of a potential £20 million move to Stamford Bridge, but having missed the next four games, Carroll was sent for a CT scan which revealed the fracture. After seeing a specialist, West Ham were given the option of treating the injury conservatively – wearing a protective boot – or sending Carroll for surgery. He had the operation on Monday and an initial timeline of around three months has been suggested. The news is likely to scupper any chance of Javier Hernandez or Diafra Sakho, who had been linked with moves away, from leaving the London Stadium in January unless Moyes can bring in reinforcements first.

Andy Carroll won't be on the move during the January transfer window following the news that the striker may need an operation to correct his ankle injury.

As expected, West Ham boss David Moyes confirmed in his Evening Standard column that Carroll's injury is serious enough to rule him out for at least the rest of this month. The 29-year-old will be assessed by specialists in the coming days to decide the correct course of action. "We only found out yesterday when he went for a scan," said Moyes. "It showed up that he’s got a problem and we’re not quite sure yet if it’s going to need an operation or not." While the loss of Carroll is a blow for the Hammers, Moyes did reveal Javier Hernandez has recovered from the flu and will be available for Saturday's match against Bournemouth. Elsewhere, Cheikhou Kouyate is back in contention but Winston Reid is still out.

West Ham could be without Andy Carroll for an extended period after the news that his ankle injury is more serious than first believed.

Carroll has missed West Ham's last three matches and was already in doubt for this weekend's match against Bournemouth. However, things went from bad to worse on Thursday. According to reports, the 29-year-old underwent a scan that revealed he will be sidelined for at least a month. West Ham manager David Moyes is expected to provide an update on Carroll's injury on Friday, which if confirmed will likely end the speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea during the transfer window. Expect Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini to lead the attack this weekend against Bournemouth, while Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew could feature off the bench.

Andy Carroll could miss out again this weekend as the injury-plagued striker battles to recover from his latest setback.

Carroll has managed just five minutes of competitive football since his two-goal haul on January 02 after suffering an ankle injury. The 29-year-old, who has reportedly piqued the interest of Chelsea, could be the catalyst in a transfer merry-go-round with Michy Batshuayi potentially moving to La Liga side Sevilla. However, David Moyes insists he wants to add bodies to his depleted side, "not lose players from my squad," amid growing speculation of a £20 million bid. "No, at the moment," said the Hammers manager when asked if Carroll has given any indication that he wants to leave the club. "Andy's got an ankle injury which had an injection in it about 10 days ago, so we're hoping that that will settle quite quickly, and he'll be back out training shortly." Wes Ham will be hoping to have Javier Hernandez is back amongst the ranks after he missed the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury because of flu.

West Ham manager David Moyes said Chelsea has yet to make an official move for forward Andy Carroll.

The former Newcastle and Liverpool striker has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks as the Blues look to bolster their depth at forward, but Moyes confirmed that there is nothing concrete as the club looks to hold onto its No. 1 striker: "They have not made contact with me, so if they have made contact with someone else I don't know about it. At the moment Andy Carroll is one of my squad, I want to add to the squad, not lose players. I know nothing about it. There have been a lot of rumours regarding a loan but as far as I know it has never officially come from Chelsea. I am not keen to lose any players, I am more keen to add to the squad."

Two second-half goals from Andy Carroll earned West Ham a late 2-1 victory over West Brom at the London Stadium.

Trailing on the hour mark, the England international powerfully headed home from Aaron Cresswell's pinpoint cross to bring the Hammers level. West Brom had a chance to retake the lead when substitute Oliver Burke was put through on goal, but Angelo Ogbonna got in a last-gasp tackle to quell the move. With the final whistle just seconds away, Carroll grabbed all three points when he turned in Marko Arnautovic's low cross from a tight angle at the far post after a sharp counter attacking move. The victory moves West Ham a point above the relegation zone, jumping above Stoke City and Southampton into 16th.

Andy Carroll has shaken off a knee problem and will be in contention for Saturday's derby clash with Chelsea after

Earlier this week, the Daily Mail reported the England center forward was expected to miss this weekend's visit from Chelsea as well as the Arsenal clash four days later. However, in his pre-match press conference, manager David Moyes revealed Carroll is fit and available for selection against the Blues. Carroll's availability was part of a double injury boost as Javier Hernandez has also been cleared to return to action after recovering from a hamstring injury. Carroll would appear to have a better chance of starting considering Hernandez hasn't featured since early November, with Michael Antonio the other option up front if the pair is on the bench.

West Ham could reportedly welcome Javier Hernandez back for Saturday's match against Chelsea, but are expected to be without Andy Carroll for a little while longer.

Hernandez handed manager David Moyes a major boost by returning to full first-team training on Wednesday after missing the last four Premier League matches. The Mexico international, however, will need to pass a fitness test ahead of Saturday's clash with another London derby coming up on Wednesday against Arsenal. Meanwhile, Carroll has yet to return to training and will play no part in the derby double-header. Moyes did not provide details regarding the nature of the injury that forced Carroll to miss last weekend's match with Manchester City, although reports say the forward could make his return against Newcastle on December 23. Michail Antonio lead the Hammers attack in GW15 and could do so again if Hernandez is unavailable.

Andy Carroll is set to be fined by West Ham after he was sent off following successive booking in as many minutes in the 1-1 draw at Burnley on Saturday.

The striker picked up two bookings inside 99 seconds at Turf Moor, both for leaping and leading with his elbows on center-backs James Tarkowksi and Ben Mee, forcing the Hammers to play with ten men for most of the match. Carroll will be docked a five-figure fine by West Ham, as it is club policy to fine players who are sent off, and miss next weekend's match against Brighton & Hove Albion. Javier Hernandez will lead the line against Brighton, with Diafra Sakho the likely option off the bench. However, Carroll is lucky to have avoid a longer ban, especially considering he could have been issued a straight red for his second booking. "For a player of Andy’s experience and everything, basically you can’t do that," said manager Slaven Bilic after the match. "The first one can happen but the second one cannot happen, especially when you play away, then you are asking for trouble and it was just an unbelievably bad decision to even go there."

Long-term absentee Andy Carroll is back in the West Ham squad and should make his long-awaited return against Huddersfield Town on Monday.

Speaking to reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic announced Carroll as fully fit and added he will definitely be included in the matchday squad. "He’s been training for almost four weeks with us and he looks good," said Bilic. The return of the injury-plagued striker is a huge boost for the Hammers with Marko Arnautovic (suspended), Manuel Lanzini (ankle) and Edmilson Fernandez (ankle) all unavailable for the home opener. Fantasy managers, specifically those in draft leagues short on forwards, should therefore give Carroll a look. With the Croatian boss in need of a positive result but short on attacking options, he could alter the formation to incorporate both Carroll and Javier Chicharito. Carroll isn’t a long-term option because of his injury history, but he could be useful while fit (however long that may prove to be).

Andy Carroll is reportedly undergoing double training session of fitness work in an attempt to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.

West Ham Head of Medical Services Gary Lewin has revealed that Carroll, who won't be fit for the start of the season, is undergoing a grueling regime of double training, fitness session and "punishing gym work" ahead of the new Premier League season. The 28-year-old struggled with knee, groin and adductor problems last season and made just 18 appearances. Carroll's continued injury woes, which have limited him to just 74 appearances over the last four seasons, will likely result in a start for summer signing Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez when the Hammers open their campaign against Manchester United at Old Trafford on 13 August. Meanwhile, youngster Toni Martinez could also factor into the mix as Diafra Sahko is also on his way back from injury.

West Ham forward Andy Carroll looks set to miss the start of the upcoming season because of a groin injury.

Speaking during West Ham's pre-season trip to Germany, manager Slaven Bilic revealed the 28-year-old forward won't be ready for the start of the Premier League campaign. "Andy is still not able to train with the team but he is working hard at Rush Green with the physios," the manager said. "I am frustrated he cannot play, now he is still injured and it is a big loss for us." Carroll's prolonged absence means he Chicharito will likely be handed his debut when the Hammers open the term against Manchester United on 13 Aug.

Manager Slaven Bilic has praised the arrival of Javier "Chicarito" Hernandez as a major signing for West Ham United.

Bilic has revealed that the signing of Chicharito, who completed his move to east London on Monday, was a move long in the works since his appoint as Hammers boss. Hernandez enjoyed four successful years at Manchester United, scoring 59 goals in 157 matches, before being sold to Bayern Leverkusen in 2015/16 after a season-long loan spell at Real Madrid. The Mexico international is a proven goalscorer capable of playing as a long striker or in a two forward system, which Bilic could be favored when frontman Andy Carroll is fit. Speaking to the club's website, Bilic was quick to list the qualities of his newest signing: "He [Hernandez] brings energy, makes movement up front and he brings running behind the defence, he brings pace, he brings quality and he brings goals and that’s it, basically!"

West Ham United kicked off their pre-season programme with a 0-0 draw against Austrian side SK Sturm Graz II in Bad Waltersdorf on Monday.

Despite a number of good opportunities to win the match, West Ham were unable to take any of their chances, and the game ended in a stalemate. However, Slaven Bilic will be pleased with his sides his first workout, and more importantly, that all 22 players came through the encounter unscathed. Angelo Ogbonna was given a 45-minute run out, only his second since undergoing knee surgery in January, while captain Mark Noble was also involved having been under the knife to rectify a hernia problem [in May]. Winston Reid [knee], Diafra Sakho [back] and Michail Antonio [hamstring] were not included, although all three are undertaking individual rehabilitation sessions at the training camp. Andy Carroll [hip] has travelled with the squad, but the striker is not ready, and his availability for the season opener in August hangs in balance.

West Ham United forward Andy Carroll has been ruled out of Sunday's visit of Liverpool.

The former Reds striker will miss the game with a groin problem, which has forced him to sit out the last three matches. Said manager Slaven Bilic on Friday: "He won't be able to play, he's still feeling his groin. It's nothing major but he will miss the game." The injury will afford Jonathan Calleri another chance to fill in up front alongside Andre Ayew.
