Andy Carroll has been conspicuous by his absence on the pitch for West Ham of late, but the striker has scored a big modelling job for high-street chain H&M, his first since signing for Select Models earlier this year.

Carroll modelled the new range, Alexander Wang for H&M, after reportedly beating more than 200 rivals to win the job.

"I had a good chat with Alexander, turns out we both have a keen interest in trainers and he had noticed the ones I was wearing before I did my shoot," Carroll told Vogue UK. "I guess you could say we discussed fashion!"

"I don't think I'm quite ready to take on Becks [David Beckham] yet," he added. "I will leave that to him for the time being! I'm going to concentrate on the day job of scoring goals for West Ham and hopefully England."
