Newcastle striker Andy Carroll has vowed to stay with the club.

The 21-year-old credited former manager Chris Hughton for helping him make an impact on the Barclays Premier League this season and was disappointed with his sacking last week. However, the marksman - whose 10 goals this season resulted in an England call-up for last month's match against France - has vowed to stay with Newcastle.

"I'm just going to go out there and carry on doing what I have been doing," he told The Sun.

"I've always worked towards being where I am now and want to stay here - it's as simple as that.

"Chris has been absolutely fantastic with me. He stuck by me through a lot and helped me on and off the field.

"All I can say is that I appreciate everything that he has done for me. He's helped me become the player I am now.

"He's gone now, and I just need to keep working on what he's taught me, and with the new manager (Alan Pardew), I've got to listen to him."
