Liverpool ACCEPT West Ham offer for Carroll

Liverpool have ACCEPTED West Ham United's offer for Andy Carroll.

The Guardian says Carroll will resist a move to West Ham United, even though Liverpool have accepted a bid from the London club that appeared to signal the end of the striker's time at Anfield. Liverpool have told West Ham that they can have Carroll on loan for the season in exchange for £2m, but that West Ham must then pay a further £17m to make the deal permanent if they retain their Premier League status.

The Merseyside club had maintained that they would not loan out Carroll, for whom they paid £35m to Newcastle United, but West Ham's proposal is an acceptable compromise to them. There would be no mere option for West Ham to buy Carroll next summer; if they remained a Premier League club, they would be legally bound to sign him.
