The striker will miss West Ham United's remaining games after undergoing ankle surgery, according to the Daily Mail.

"He will resolve the problem with his ankle. He worked for the last three months without any injury, so I think it’s just a matter of time, but he will return to play – here or for another team."

Carroll joined Liverpool from Newcastle United in January 2011 in a £35million deal.

The 30-year-old – who has been troubled by persistent ankle problems during his time at West Ham – has been repeatedly linked with a return to St James's Park.
