Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest claim to emerge concerning Andy Carroll and his current situation.
The article claims that the striker is searching for a new club following his exit from Newcastle after his contract ran out at the end of June.
This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon supporters, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest claim.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this news about Carroll?
“Common sense for once!”
“Thank goodness for that”
“Thank goodness / frees up some wages”
“Poor signing at the time he was way past it just glad they haven’t renewed like they did with Gayle. I would have got rid of both players.”
“I wish him well but I’m glad he’s gone.”
“He was a “signing for the fans” even though no one wanted him back.”
Looking at the replies to this post, it seems as though these Newcastle supporters are rather pleased to hear that Carroll has reportedly left the club and is looking for a new one to join this summer.
Do you think Newcastle need to sign a striker this summer?
In our view, given how the 32-year-old only managed to score one goal during his time playing under Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park in 43 appearances across all competitions, perhaps letting him leave is the best option for the Magpies.
Moving forward, with Carroll having reportedly left the club and the fact that current Toon striker Callum Wilson has had his fair share of injury issues, perhaps the club should look into potentially signing a new striker to replace Carroll.
