Newcastle striker Andy Carroll has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at the Premier League club.

The 20-year-old has scored twice in six games for the Magpies this term, having made his full home debut in January.

Carroll, who was born in Gateshead, spent some of last season on loan at Championship side Preston before returning to St James' Park.

"This is where I want to play my football and this season has been a dream for me," said Carroll.


Carroll, became the club's youngest ever European debutant when he came on as a substitute in a 1-0 Uefa Cup win over Palermo in Sicily in November 2006.

"I came into the side earlier in the year and scored twice in six games," added Carroll.

"My first goal for my home-town club was amazing and I hope to score many more in the future."

Meanwhile, Carroll has been called up to the England under-20 squad for their friendly against Italy at Loftus Road on 31 March.
