West Brom has completed the signing of former Liverpool man Andy Carroll on loan until the end of the season. He was eligible to join the Baggies after his short-term deal with Reading ended this month. Carroll joined after a hamstring injury to Daryl Dike on his debut against Peterborough ruled him out for eight weeks. Dike signed at the start of the month from Orlando City for £7m.
“Andy is a player who is able to help us straight away. He is ready and brings with him all the attributes we need. It could be a win-win situation for us,” West Brom head coach Valerian Ismael said after the signing of Andy Carroll. “The fact Andy has played plenty of games for Reading recently is great. He’s fit after playing those games and he’s scored goals during that short-term deal. Hopefully, Andy can now score goals for us. After the Dike injury, we assessed the situation, because it is a big loss, and it was clear that he had made an impact in that short time. We needed to replace him, and we are pleased to welcome Andy who has a lot of experience.”
