Newcastle have been quite busy this summer and their final addition to the team might just be the most surprising one yet.
The Magpies have now officially confirmed the big return of Andy Carroll to St. James’ Park on transfer deadline day and the 30-year-old forward has signed an initial one-year deal with the club.
Of course, Carroll is no stranger to the Toon Army as he has already spent some time with Newcastle in his career between 2008 and 2011.
And the player was announced with a brilliant video that Carroll captioned as “I’m coming home”.
The 30-year-old centre-forward has scored 33 goals in his first spell with the club and has managed to bag one goal in 14 appearances last season, while he has 53 Premier League strikes to his name in total.
He also joins the team as Steve Bruce’s fifth summer signing after Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth.
Carroll has also won nine caps for England, managing to score two goals in the process.
