LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 3- West Ham striker Andy Carroll was held at gunpoint after training on Wednesday, Sky sources understand.

A club statement said later on Wednesday night that the police were investigating an incident involving one of their players, believed to be Carroll.

The statement said: “West Ham United can confirm an incident targeting one of our players on Wednesday November 2. The matter is now being handled by the police.”

Carroll has not played for the Hammers since the Europa League qualifier against Astra Giurgiu on August 18, a game in which the England international sustained a knee injury.

The problem was only meant to sideline Carroll for six weeks, but he has only just returned to training this week.

The Hammers’ next game is against Stoke City at the London Stadium on Saturday.
