On loan West Ham striker Andy Carroll is happy to take a significant pay cut in order to join former club Newcastle United this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Liverpool front man is set to return to Anfield for pre season as West Ham have struggled to secure a deal to keep him in East London after impressive displays in recent weeks.
The England forward is now the Hammers joint top goalscorer this season and the Hammers are doing everything possible to keep him.
However the Newcastle-born striker is hoping to move back to his hometown club this summer and is willing to take a pay cut to do so.
The Toon desperately need to get a result at Queens Park Rangers today in order to avoid joining them in the Championship next season, however it is still in their hands with Wigan three points adrift.
Carroll may be a big name arrival in the summer but a number of key players may well be on their way out of St James’ Park at the end of the season.
