West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been  ruled out of two pre-season friendlies in New Zealand due to ankle soreness.

The England international, 25, developed a sore left ankle during training, according to a statement from the Premier League club.

Carroll missed  West Ham’s clash against the Wellington Phoenix in Auckland yesterday and will equally miss the tie against  Sydney three days later.

The former Newcastle and Liverpool striker was hampered by injuries in 2013-14, making 15 league appearances and scoring just twice.

A West Ham statement read: “After assessment by the club’s medical experts, it was decided to let the England international rest for both remaining games and receive intensive treatment to ensure he is fit for the start of the season.
