West Ham set to sign Carroll on a permanent basis

West Ham set to sign Carroll on a permanent basis

West Ham have agreed a transfer fee to sign Liverpool loanee Andy Carroll on a permanent basis.

The Hammers will pay Liverpool an initial fee of £12million, which could rise depending on striker’s success at the Boleyn Ground.

Carroll has spent a season on loan at West Ham. Although the injuries limited his appearances for the club to 28 in all competitions, he gained his best form in the second half of the season, scoring seven goals. His impressive performances earned him call-up to England national team and West Ham boss Sam Allardyce made his signing a priority.

Despite the interest from Monaco and his former side Newcastle, West Ham have a priority in making his deal permanent and it looks like he will remain at the Boleyn Ground. Carroll himself said he enjoyed his football at West Ham and would like to sign a permanent deal with the club.

He said: “I have just tried to play my best in every match, score goals and keep myself fit once I got back from the injuries I had and then push on from there.
“I have worked hard to get myself back in the England squad, trying to play my best for West Ham, so I am really pleased about that. I just have to make sure I keep playing well to stay in there.

“I have had a great season here, really enjoyed being part of a great set of lads in the team, with the staff around us and the fans. Everyone has been so welcoming to me. This is a great club.”
