Andy Carroll is in line to make his first appearance for the club on Saturday when West Ham face Aston Villa at Upton Park – and the clubs record signing can’t wait.
Carroll, who has not featured at all this season due to an ankle ligament injury picked up during pre season, is expected to be on the bench this Saturday, with Diafra Sakho set to return to the starting 11 alongside Enner Valencia upfront.
Carroll took to Twitter on Saturday to express his delight in seeing the Irons pick up a well earned point against Stoke City, and expressed his excitement on his impending return.
@AndyTCarroll: Great point today from the lads can’t wait to be back involved in this powerful squad!!!
