Andy Carroll update

West Ham United can confirm that Andy Carroll will have an operation on ligaments in his left ankle in the United States on Friday.

The England international will then have a week of recovery before starting an intensive period of rehabilitation, which is expected to take four months.

The Club would like to again make clear that this is a new injury and not in any way associated with the injury he successfully overcame at the end of last season.

Carroll said: "I'm gutted to be missing the start of the season after working hard during the summer and pre-season. Although this obviously isn't the news I would have wanted, I'm determined to come back fitter and stronger than ever before. I will be doing all I can to get back on the pitch with the lads as soon as possible."
