Liverpool striker Carroll to have West Ham medical

Andy Carroll’s proposed permanent move to West Ham from Liverpool looks to have moved closer as ESPN reports the England striker is to have a medical with the Hammers.

Carroll spent last season on loan at Upton Park, scoring seven goals in 24 games, and is not part of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans for the coming season, with Rodgers keen to see Carroll move on permanently to give him the financial freedom to overhaul the squad at Anfield.

Liverpool paid Newcastle £35m for Carroll in January 2011 under Rodgers’ predecessor Kenny Dalglish but Rodgers wasted little time in letting Carroll move to West Ham on loan after replacing Dalglish last summer. And Carroll is now said to have decided upon a full-time switch to the Boleyn Ground, interrupting his summer holiday to return to England to complete the medical.

The 24-year-old made 58 appearances for Liverpool, 34 of them in the league, scoring 11 goals. Carroll previously played under West Ham manager Sam Allardyce at Newcastle.
