This weekend, West Ham United head to the King Power Stadium, to take on Leicester City, for a Premier League fixture.

With the club just three points clear of the relegation pack, it is essential that the Hammers get the one win they need to virtually assure their Premier League status is retained for next season.

However, according to the Guardian there is a good chance that West Ham could be heading to Leicester without Andy Carroll.

Our striker, now fit again after recovering from yet another injury setback, is in hot water with David Moyes following an incident in the home game against Manchester City.

Carroll, frustrated at not being used as a substitute, stormed down the tunnel and wasn’t seen, pitch-side, again.

When the squad returned to training, on Monday, words were exchanged between Moyes and Carroll, with the striker being sent home.

As a consequence, it is expected that Carroll will be hit with a fine and may not be selected for the party that is to travel to Leicester.

Continuing, it would also bring to the forefront the long-term future of Carroll at the club.

His injury record, this season, has been as unfortunate as in previous seasons.

The striker has only scored three times this season and has only started seven Premier League games.

But, if there is a parting of the ways on the horizon, you have to ask yourself just how much the Hammers would get for a player that spends more time in the treatment room than on the pitch!
