Head coach Steve Bruce confirmed that Andy Carroll left Newcastle after his contract expired.
The 32-year-old rejoined Newcastle in 2019, but made a total of 37 appearances in the Premier League and only scored one goal.
Following his trade at the end of last season and the reassignment of his No. 7 jersey to Jolinton, Bruce confirmed in a friendly 1-0 victory over York on Sunday that Carroll will move on.
“I think Andy thinks it’s time to play football,” Bruce told Sky Sports News When asked about Carol’s future.
“I wish him luck, he did a great job for me, but I think he wants to play somewhere and enjoy his last years.”
With less than a month before the start of the new Premier League season, Bruce did confirm that the club is working hard to bring some new players to St. James’s Park.
After Alaves on loan last season, defender Florian Lejeune is expected to complete a permanent transfer to Alaves.
“All the decisions to get a team of 25 people together are everything now,” Bruce added.
“All the work has started, we are ready for two or three things, and we will see how things develop.
“Flo Lejeune is negotiating with the Spanish club on loan last year, so there may be some progress there.
“I believe there will be a little movement. The transfer market has been very quiet, I hope it will be like that, but I believe it will be a bit hot.”
