Andy Carroll was told to leave the club's training ground after an argument with David Moyes.

The striker, who has spent the vast majority of his time at West Ham on the bench was spotted leaving the dugout on Sunday immediately after Moyes made his third and final substitution in the 4-1 drubbing against Manchester City.

And Moyes is understood to have sent Carroll home from training the following day, on Monday, after the two had what had been described as "a heated exchange".

Moyes - who in recent weeks has publicly criticised Manuel Lanzini and teenage defender Declan Rice - is understood to have reprimanded the former England international for his behaviour.

And according to eye-witness accounts, the 29-year-old was then dismissed from the session after become embroiled in a very public spat with the temporary manager, whose stock continues to fall with each passing day.

Carroll - who has featured for West Ham on just 16 occasions this season - is understood to have claimed he needed to use the toilet as an excuse for his disappearing act during Sunday's match.
