After already visiting both Belgium and Holland for treatment on his foot injury, Andy Carroll is set to visit United States in an attempt to seek specialist advice on his current foot injury, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 24-year-old injured his plantar fascia, a tissue that connects the bottom of the foot to the heel, on the final day of last season.
Carroll is expected to be back in London on Friday where he will have talks with the club regarding the next step on his road to recovery.
When asked if the player’s treatment would continue away from West Ham, manager Sam Allardyce said: “We are not sure yet, we need to make that decision.
“He’s been in Holland and Belgium this week. He will take some time away for one-on-one stuff we’ve found in Europe and that will hopefully speed up the recovery even more so.”
‘Big Sam’ also revealed how his striker’s injury was more common in basketball players rather than footballers.
Carroll managed 7 goals and 4 assists in 26 games while on loan at West Ham from Liverpool last campaign.
