Albion confirm Carroll capture

Albion have today completed the signing of experienced striker Andy Carroll on a free transfer. 

The former Liverpool, Newcastle, West Ham and England man arrives at The Hawthorns having penned a short-term contract until the end of the season.

6ft4in centre-forward Carroll, who is eligible to play at Millwall on Saturday, bolsters Albion’s attacking options following a hamstring injury to Daryl Dike, and joins following a spell with Reading where he netted twice during an eight-game, two-month stay.

Head Coach, Valérien Ismaël, said: “Andy is a player who is able to help us straight away. He is ready and brings with him all the attributes we need. It could be a win-win situation for us.

“The fact Andy has played plenty of games for Reading recently is great. He’s fit after playing those games and he’s scored goals during that short-term deal. Hopefully Andy can now score goals for us. 

“After the Dike injury we assessed the situation, because it is a big loss, and it was clear that he had made an impact in that short time. We needed to replace him, and we are pleased to welcome Andy who has a lot of experience.”
