West Ham keeper Carroll checks into rehab

The Daily Mail says the Northern Ireland keeper admitted himself into the Capio Nightingale Hospital in Marylebone on Monday following crisis talks with Hammers manager Alan Pardew at the weekend. It is understood that the former Manchester United star, who has been restricted to 10 first-team appearances this season, has been bitten by the betting bug staking up to £5,000 on any given event and has succumbed to binge drinking after weekend games. Pardew said yesterday: "We are aware that Roy has problems and we are fully supporting him in any way we can. He has gone about tackling the issues in the right way and is seeking expert help to sort him out. "I understand he will leave the clinic today and will be back in training with us on Thursday."
