West Ham issue Carroll ultimatum to Liverpool

West Ham United have told Liverpool they will not wait all summer for a decision over the future of Andy Carroll, according to the Daily Mirror. The England striker has been linked with a loan exit from Anfield but Carroll favours a return to former club Newcastle United.

The new Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, is understood to have doubts over the suitability of Carroll for the style he is attempting to impose on the Reds. As such Carroll is expected to leave the club this summer and West Ham are thus far the highest bidders, offering a loan deal and a £17m permanent move in a year’s time.

But Carroll is holding out for a move back to Newcastle, who have seen their approach rejected by Liverpool. Frustrated by the delay, West Ham are thought to have informed Liverpool that they are prepared to turn to other targets if Carroll does not come to a decision soon.
