Will Ba go bye bye as Newcastle could be Carroll singing?
Rumours abound that Andy Carroll could be on his way back to Newcastle as his Liverpool career has struggled to take off.
William Hill think he will remain on Merseyside, however, offering 1/10 that he does not return to the Magpies (11/2 that he does).
In just under one year at Liverpool, Andy Carroll has managed just four Premier League goals and Hills make him 8/13 to score more than that for Newcastle (should he sign) by the end of the season.
"To say that Andy Carroll has struggled at Liverpool, would be a bit of an understatement but, despite this, the extended absence of Luis Suarez means that the Reds may not cut their losses just yet," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Andy Carroll's arrival on Tyneside could depend on whether Demba Ba's release clause is activated, with a number of top teams reportedly interested in signing the Senegalese striker.
He is 2/1 to leave St. James' Park in January with PSG the 13/8 favourites to be his next club. Spurs are 11/4 second favourites to be Ba's next club with Chelsea 3/1.
Thierry Henry marked his return to Arsenal by scoring and did so sporting a full beard. Hill's think that Henry will now keep his beard for the full duration that he stays at Arsenal offering 1/2 that he does not appear clean shaven (as smooth as a baby's bum during a match).
"We believe that Thierry Henry is very superstitious and think he will keep the beard until he departs at the end of February," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle in January: 11/2 Yes; 1/10 no (loan deals included)
If Andy Carroll moves back to Newcastle, will he score more than four: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no
Demba Ba Leave Newcastle in January: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no
Damba Ba next club: 13/8 PSG; 11/4 Tottenham; 3/1 Chelsea; 8/1 Arsenal; 8/1 Liverpool; 10/1 Man Utd; 14/1 Man City
Will Thierry Henry appear clean shaven for a match during his time at Arsenal: 1/2 no; 6/4 yes
