With Jimmy Walker set to miss at least six months through the injury sustained in the 2005 play-off final, Alan Pardew moved quickly to secure the services of Norn Iron keeper Carroll, who had been allowed to leave Old Trafford after refusing to sign a new two-year-deal.
Although not a free transfer as such (Carroll received a signing-on fee reported to be in the region of £1m when joining the Hammers) it is hard to argue that he hasn't been good value for every single penny of that.
