According to West Ham co-owner David Sullivan, Liverpool have already agreed to sell striker Andy Carroll to the hammers when his season long loan finishes.
Carroll's time with the Hammers has been badly hampered by injury and he has managed just one goal from nine Premier League starts and two substitute appearances.
Sullivan admitted that despite reaching an accord with their Premier League rivals, they have yet to agree terms with the 24-year-old former Newcastle hitman.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline: "I am often asked about Andy Carroll's deal. It is a season-long loan. Liverpool had an option to take him back in January, but he has been injured.
"West Ham have an agreement with Liverpool to sign him at the end of the season, but we have no agreement with the player.
"It was his desire to come to West Ham to prove himself to Liverpool and that hasn't changed.
"He has had injuries since he came, but he is back to fitness now and we have 15 games left... we need some goals and some points, so let's see."
