Andy Carroll: West Ham United striker looking ahead to next season

The 25-year-old struggled with a foot injury for much of this campaign and was able to make only 15 Premier League appearances for the Hammers, scoring two goals and providing four assists in the process.

The former Liverpool forward also missed out on England's 23-man World Cup squad, but is on manager Roy Hodgson's standby list.

Carroll has now said that he is relishing the prospect of starting the 2014/15 campaign fresh and without injuries.

"I can't wait for the new season to start," he told West Ham's official website.

"I didn't want the last one to end to be honest, I still felt fresh and ready to play more games as I had missed the opening half of the season.

"We had a talk after the last match about the positives and the tough times we had when we were sucked into the relegation fight for a bit, but the gaffer, staff and all the lads had the belief that, once we came through those times and got players back, we could get better and we did.

"Now the focus is to push on and look forward to the new season."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
