West Ham assistant manager Alan Irvine expects West Ham striker Andy Carroll to still be at West Ham next month despite interest from Chelsea.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing the 29-year-old striker on loan for the rest of the season but Irvine revealed West Ham won’t consider a loan exit for Carroll.
“I certainly hope Andy will be a player here at the end of the month,” Irvine said.
“I don’t think we have had any offers, in terms of taking him on loan, and I don’t think the club would entertain him going out on loan.
“That does not help us and we need as much help as we can get between now and the end of the season, so I don’t know why that would be attractive to the club if it was to come up.
“There has been a lot of talk about it, but not necessarily anybody doing anything about it.”
Carroll has scored twice in 12 Premier League appearances this season.
