Former England striker Andy Carroll has rejoined his boyhood club Newcastle United, more than eight years after leaving them to join Liverpool in a then British record transfer.
The injury-plagued 30-year-old was a free agent after being released by West Ham United at the end of last season.
"It's an amazing feeling," Tyneside-born Carroll said on Thursday. "On the way up it was butterflies in the stomach and I couldn't believe it really.
"It's been a long time. It's unfinished business. I left on a high and I want to come back to where I was, playing games, scoring goals and enjoying it really.
