Andy Carroll To West Ham Transfer Rumour Continues

Reports in all the papers today suggest West Ham United have shattered their transfer bid record with a £17 Million move for Liverpool Striker Andy Carroll.

Carroll, 23,  is thought to be deemed as surplus to requirements by new Liverpool boss Brendan Rogers who is keen to recoup as much of the record breaking £35 Million the club spent bringing the player in from Newcastle.

The rumour mill went into overdrive a few days ago with West Ham Co-Owner David Sullivan’s son tweeting:

Everyone thought it to be Carroll straight away and it now looks like this is confirmed.

There are however different takes on how West Ham plan on paying for the striker, with some suggesting an initial £2 Million to take the player on loan with a further £17 Million to be paid to complete the permanent transfer at the end of the season, with others suggesting a straight up cash offer.

Knowing our board I think the loan move with a permanent transfer should West Ham stay in the Premier League to be more likely.

Even though Kevin Nolan has no doubt been in Carroll’s ear, it’s thought that he would prefer a move back to Newcastle first and foremost, but if they fail to stump up the fee then he would look at our offer.

  1. This rumour just runs on and on and on, typical West Ham getting out hopes up and then we end up with someone like John Carew again!
