Andy Carroll returns to West Ham first team training for the first time in 8 months [Pictures]

West Ham have struggled for goals this season, at least partially due to star striker Andy Carroll’s long term injury.

The former Liverpool forward was signed for £17.5m this summer but is yet to feature for the struggling Irons this season.

Andy Carroll was today photographed training with the first team, with a return to action not far away.

The England international will have to regain match fitness before making his comeback at West Ham, having not played since May 2013.
