Burnley are considering a move for former England international Andy Carroll

Burnley are considering a surprise move for Reading’s former England international Andy Carroll as an emergency attacking option, 90min understands.

The Clarets have unexpectedly lost their main striker Chris Wood after relegation rivals Newcastle United triggered his £25m release clause earlier this week.

Now Burnley are scrambling for a replacement and one of those being looked at is Carroll, who in theory would be able to move Turf Moor immediately with his short-term deal with Reading set to expire this weekend.

After leaving Newcastle in the summer, Carroll – who has just turned 33 – signed for the Championship side in mid-November and has been working his way back to full fitness.

Having started five games for the Royals, the towering striker is becoming an important part of Veljko Paunovic’s side.
