Andy Carroll’s West Ham career seems to be reaching its conclusion, with the striker once again left out of the matchday squad under Manuel Pellegrini over the weekend.

The towering striker has made just three league starts this season, with the last coming against reigning Premier League champions Manchester City last month.

And according to the Daily Mail, the Hammers will allow the former England international to leave on a free when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

West Ham do have the option to extend the powerful forward’s contract for a further two years, however, by doing so, the club would have to increase Carroll’s wage, which is reportedly £90,000-a-week currently.

Since joining the club on a permanent basis from Liverpool back in 2013, Carroll has turned out over 140 times in east London, finding the back of the net on 34 occasions, however, it appears as if the 6ft 3in striker will be on the search for a new club very soon.
