Carroll to return before end of season

David Moyes has revealed that he expects Andy Carroll to return to first team action earlier than previously predicted.

The 29-year-old striker, who was linked with a loan move to Chelsea shortly before being sidelined was expected to miss the rest of the campaign with his latest injury, an ankle problem, sustained back in January.

However manager Moyes has confirmed that the former England international is expected to return to first team action within the next few weeks - meaning that he should be able to play a role in West Ham's last "four or five" games this season.

"Andy Carroll is still a very important member of our squad and I hope he will be available for the final four or five games, even if it is off the bench at times," Moyes told the Standard.

"Before his injury, Andy scored two unbelievably good goals against West Brom in a really important victory for us and I wanted him in Miami to see how I work on a trip like that and also what I expect of him. He is ahead of schedule in terms of his recovery and I am positive that the trip helped him."

Carroll has featured just 14 times for West Ham thus far this season, scoring twice and being booked on six occasions.
