“I’m waking up every morning at my mum and dad’s house, where it all began,” Gateshead-born Carroll told nufc.co.uk. “I’m driving into training, the same drive we drove when I was seven. I had a walk around town the other day. It’s home.

“I can’t wait to just walk out at St. James’s – I really can’t. I walked into the stadium when I was signing, and walked down the side of the pitch. Just an unbelievable feeling. When I put the shirt on and walk out … I can’t describe it.”

The 30-year-old added: “I’m more buzzing to put it on now, the shirt, than I was when I was 17. I’m so excited.”
