Strong reports this evening have suggested West Ham United have finally agreed a fee with Liverpool for the services of giant striker Andy Carroll.

The England International has spent the season on loan with the Hammers and is now weighing up a permanent move to Upton Park with other sides domestically and overseas interested in his services as well.

West Ham have offered an initial £12 million to secure his services with a further £3 million paid in installments at the end of next season.

This will prove a hefty loss for Liverpool, who signed the player for a whopping £35 million under former manager Kenny Dalglish.

Former club Newcastle United have held a long standing interest in the player after losing Demba Ba to Chelsea in January, and will look at the possibility of bringing back the striker to St.James’ Park.

The decision is now in Carroll’s hands, who will need to decide whether to take a pay cut and relocate to London to continue his career with the Hammers.
