West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan hopes they can sign permanently on-loan Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.

Nolan wrote in the Daily Mail: "I certainly hope we can put the figures together to get him here. I know it will benefit him on the England side, it will benefit us as a club, and it will benefit me personally because we've got a good understanding.

"If he had stayed away from injuries this year I think we would have been a few places higher in the league and have a lot more points on the board. Probably both of us would have had a lot more goals."
