Asked by Sky Sports UK about rumours linking him to a possible move to Chinese Super League, whose clubs are welcoming more and more star players (not only career-ending ones), due to their pantagruelic cash offers, former English international striker Andy Carroll, playing for West Ham since 2013/14, denied such a chance existing: "No, no, I don't know where that came from. I'm very happy here, I'm settled. Obviously, in the past I've done a lot of things, and I have settled down here. I think it is great, I love the club. I think the staff, fans, players, and the area that I live, everything is perfect. I have settled in pretty well, and I'm enjoying it. Though it was tough at the beginning. But now we are getting a few games there, the lads are starting to like it, the fans are warming to it. The Old Trafford? It is a fantastic stadium and a great place to play. We would like to start the year off obviously with a win, it would be good for us. It is going to be a tough game". Former Newcastle and Liverpool hitman is turning 28 next Friday, January 6, and is currently on a deal with Hammers until June 2019.
