Andy Carroll is out of contract and expected to leave West Ham in the summer. He looks like he has played his final game in claret and blue after undergoing season-ending surgery.

According to a report by The London Evening Standard, Carroll is weighing up his summer options and a move to a Major League Soccer club could be an option.

But MLS side New England Revolution have moved to quash speculation linking them with a swoop for Carroll.

According to sources close to MLS Soccer, New England Revolution will not offer Carroll the chance to move to the United States.

Former Premier League goalkeeper Brad Friedel is the manager of the Revs but he is not interested in the 30-year-old.


MLS teams are only allowed a certain amount of international “designated” players and New England Revolution only have one spot remaining.

Carroll might have been joining former English league players Michael Mancienne and Carles Gil at New England Revolution. But his hopes of sealing this move appear to be dashed.

Andy Carroll: what does the future hold?

Carroll’s injury record makes him a risk for any potential suitor. West Ham are unlikely to renew his contract and other clubs will probably be reluctant to match his £90k-per-week pay packet (The London Evening Standard).

The most likely career path for the 9-cap ex-England international would be a switch to the MLS. But he will have to hope another club take an interest after New England Revolution ruled out a move.
