West Ham United's deal for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is worth a staggering £60 MILLION.

The Daily Star says West Ham paid Liverpool £16m, which could rise to £19m with add-ons, to sign Carroll following his loan spell last season.

The striker signed an initial six-year deal worth &;pound;100,000-a-week.

West Ham have the option of extending his contract by another two, which would tie him to the club until 2021.

The whole deal could end up costing the Hammers an eye-watering £60m.
