Cape Town - Former England international Andy Carroll has completed his return to Newcastle United, minutes before the closure of the transfer window.

Carroll - who scored 33 goals during his first spell with the club – becomes head coach Steve Bruce’s fifth addition of the summer, following the arrivals of Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth.

“It feels very good. My friends and family are here, and it’s the club that I support - it is home,” said Carroll.

“I enjoyed the time I spent here, and hopefully I can carry on where I left off. When I left eight-and-a-half years ago, I was scoring goals and I was enjoying my football. It’s been a pretty tough time since then, and I just want to get back to that.

“I know it’s home. I’ve played here, I’ve spoken to the fans - I am a fan - and my family is here. For me to get back to where I was, I think this is the only place for me.”

The Magpies kick-off their Premier League campaign on Sunday at home to Arsenal.
