Andy Carroll is hoping he can stay at West Ham for the long-term, despite concerns over his future at the club.

As reported by Sky Sports, Carroll insists he is fighting to secure his future at the London Stadium.

Yes, I want to stay and I want a new deal but I can’t really think about that every day. I’ve just got to play my football when I get the chance.

I’ve got a two-year option at the end of the season so we’ll see what happens. I’ve got to play a few more games like this one and, like the manager says, I’ve got to impress him in the minutes he gives me.

The striker is out of contract at the end of the season and he has been linked with moves away from the club in recent weeks.

While Carroll has impressed in spells for the Hammers lately, the former Liverpool and West Ham man continues to struggle with injuries.

Carroll has started just one Premier League game this season, while also making a further six appearances off the bench.

There is believed to be interest from clubs in Turkey, but it remains to be seen if the player is interested in a move abroad at this stage of his career.
