West Ham United and England striker Andy Carroll has suffered another foot injury in training and is waiting to see a specialist to learn the extent of the damage.

The 24-year-old has yet to play for West Ham since he completed a club record £15million permanent move to Upton Park from Liverpool this summer.

Last season the former Newcastle ace scored seven goals in 24 appearances in the Premier League while on loan at the Hammers . Carroll struggled to find his form after picking up a heel injury, but he did enough to impress Sam Allardyce.

Carroll missed the club’s pre-season schedule and Allardyce thought that the striker may be fit to return to action before September. However, he started training fully again on Monday and immediately picked up a new injury.

The club confirmed the setback in a statement and are now waiting for the forward to visit a specialist for a more detailed diagnosis.

“West Ham United can confirm that Andy Carroll suffered an injury to his right foot during his return to full training today,” read a statement on West Ham’s official website.

“Although it is in the same part of his foot as his previous injury, it is a new injury and therefore there will be no prognosis until he has seen a specialist.

“whufc.com will provide a further update when the relevant information is available.”
