There's a chance West Ham United and Newcastle United could be completing some transfer business while in New Zealand.

Reports in England suggest Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is interested in bringing former Toon striker Andy Carroll back to St James' Park from West Ham.

The Sunday Mirror reports that Pardew is prepared to bid £15million (NZ$29.4million) for the 25-year-old England striker, bringing him home after last playing for Newcastle in 2011.

Carroll moved from Newcastle to Liverpool for £35million (NZ$68.7million) in January 2012, but largely failed to deliver in his time at Anfield.

He has regained some form in his time with West Ham, but nothing like the form he showed in Newcastle colours.

Carroll bagged 11 goals in 19 matches in his final six months at Newcastle , but since then has only scored 15 goals in 83 appearances for Liverpool and West Ham.

A stumbling block to the transfer could be his wages, which are reported to be around £120,000 (NZ$235,000) per week.

Newcastle take on Sydney FC in Dunedin tomorrow night, and then play the Wellington Phoenix in Wellington on Saturday. 

West Ham play the Phoenix in Auckland tomorrow night, and Sydney FC in Wellington on Saturday.
