Liverpool have agreed a deal with West Ham, that would send Andy Carroll out on loan to the London Club. The two clubs have settled on a £2million loan deal for the England striker, with a further £17million on the table should the newly-promoted Hammers stay in the Premier League.
Its understood that West Ham have matched Carroll’s £90,000 per week wages, but apparently Carroll doesn’t fancy a move down South and he would only consider leaving Liverpool for a Champions League club or his former team Newcastle United.
Newcastle were interested in the tall Englishman, and they reportedly made a £15 million bid for the striker, £20 million less than the club had received for Carroll back in 2011. That bid was then rejected and the club is yet to re-bid, but that now seems unlikely after Demba Ba’s £7 million buy-out clause expired on Tuesday night.
West Ham’s chances do seem to be slipping away, despite agreeing a deal with Liverpool, because the England international is not keen on a move to the East End, the newly-promoted Barclays Premier League side will not give up on their pursuit.
A West Ham source told The Sun: ‘West Ham are not giving up on this. The manager wants him badly and the board are backing him to the hilt.’
This deal may be the best offer the Reds can hope for given the fact that the misfiring marksman has only scored six league goals in a Liverpool shirt since joining the club in 2011.
