Moyes in the dark over Carroll rumours


Filed: Wednesday, 17th January 2018

David Moyes insisted tonight that he has no knowledge of any impending bid from Chelsea for Andy Carroll.

Speaking to the media after West Ham had beaten Shrewsbury Town at the Olympic Stadium, the manager was asked if he could expand upon rumours suggesting that the currently-injured striker - 29 last week - might be on his way to Stamford Bridge.

And the question was initially dismissed by Moyes, who replied: "Well they've not made contact with me!" - before adding: "If they've made contact with someone else, I don't know about it. I want to add players to my squad, not lose players.

"I know nothing about it. There have been a lot of rumours regarding a loan, but as far as I know it's never officially come from Chelsea. I don't know who the sources are - but maybe you know better than me."

Moyes, whose team won the FA Cup 3rd round replay 1-0 thanks to Reece Burke's extra-time winner also dismissed speculation suggesting that he was looking to move Javier Hernandez on.

The Mexican international has spent just half a season at West Ham since making a big money move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
