Allardyce believes West Ham cannot afford Carroll

Allardyce believes West Ham cannot afford Carroll

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce revealed Carroll’s wage demands appear to be a stumbling block to the club’s hopes of landing the player from Liverpool.

24-year-old Carroll has delivered a series of impressive performances during his loan spell at West Ham this season, scoring six goals in 20 first-team starts. Although Allardyce is keen on signing the player on the permanent basis, West Ham are unable to meet Carroll’s wage demands.

‘Big Sam’ revealed the new financial restrictions that will be implemented next season in Premier League, imposing the short-term limitations on the players’ wages, will hamper the move. He said: “The hardest thing is the overall package and making sure it is sustainable. I point to financial restrictions being implemented next season that will blow the whole deal in one go.

“Someone will have a bigger budget than us probably but this is what is going to happen.In one fell swoop the financial restrictions mean we won’t be able to sign Andy Carroll from Liverpool because it is too expensive, even if we wanted him, which we do,” he added.
