Andy Carroll could be back in action as early as next month, according to fresh reports.

Hugh Southon, writing for Sports Direct News believes that the England international may be back as early as mid-November, despite most reports hinting at a December return.

According to Southon, the trip to Norwich three weeks from now is a possible target - although the London derby with Chelsea on 23rd November is a more likely prospect.

"It's good news all the way at the moment," said a source. "He's happy and making a very good recovery indeed."

Meanwhile Sam Allardyce believes that Carroll, who is now back in basic training, will be motivated by England's qualification for next summer's World Cup Finals.

"I think that the Andy Carrolls of this world will want to get fit and play well for West Ham as soon as he can," said Big Sam. "It will be at the back of his mind that the World Cup is coming and he wants to be a part of that squad.

"He forged his way into the England set-up with his performances at the back end of last season after maintaining his fitness. Now he's got this unfortunate injury but hopefully he can be a part of it as well.
