Updated 2017-03-03 12:02:45 Xinhua

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said on Thursday that Chinese Super League clubs are very interested in striker Andy Carroll but they will not sell their best player.

Carrool, who previously played at Newcastle and Liverpool, has been plagued with injury this season, scoring only six times in 12 Premier League appearances. "He is one of our best players and we want to keep him," said Bilic.

"Chinese clubs sent their representatives over to investigate. They were watching other players, but they fell in love with Andy. The club didn't try to sell him."

Bilic said Carroll heard about the interest and was no doubt "flattered by it", but that it had not been discussed, the BBC reported.
