Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is due for a medical at Upton Park tomorrow after returning from his holiday.
The news was announced this afternoon by West Ham co-owner David Gold on Twitter: “Andy Carroll is having his medical tomorrow.”
The giant striker has been in talks with the Hammers for the past few weeks after spending last season on loan at the club where he scored 7 goals in 24 games.
A fee of £15 million has been agreed for his services which is a huge loss on the £35 million Liverpool paid Newcastle for the forward after selling Fernando Torres to Chelsea.
The papers have reported that Carroll will pen a four-year contract at the club for a massive £100,000 a week.
It will be a massive signal of intent by Sam Allardyce’s side, whom confirmed earlier this month that the striker was his main target this summer:
“Our first priority is signing Andy Carroll, if we can,”
“We have nearly finished our planning for pre-season and the players have all had their training programmes given to them so when they come back on 1st July they are ready to go.”
“Then it’s about the recruitment of the other players who we want as quickly as possible. That will be the most difficult part of the summer.”
Carroll will undergo a medical tomorrow, and is due to be revealed as a West Ham player before the weekend.
