West Ham legend Dicks says they must sign Liverpool's Carroll

West Ham United legend Julian Dicks says Sam Allardyce must do all he can to sign permanently Andy Carroll.

Carroll is on-loan at West Ham from Liverpool.

Dicks told the Daily Star Sunday: "I really like Andy Carroll and think he is right for West Ham when you have Sam as a manager.

"He gives you that option if you want to play direct and he knows where the goal is. But he is not a prolific striker and the price has to be right.

"I don't think they should pay more than £12m for him, given that he will be on around £80,000 a week.

"I am glad West Ham kept him during the transfer window.

"But I hope he has stayed for the right reasons and won't want to leave again in the summer."
