Liverpool have accepted West Ham's loan offer for the Geordie.
â€śAndy Carrollâ€™s a good player,â€ť Dicks told talkSPORT. â€śHeâ€™d be a good asset for West Ham.
â€śHeâ€™s perfectly made for West Ham. Heâ€™s a big lad, he holds the ball up well and heâ€™s aggressive.
â€śHe did really well at Newcastle and heâ€™d do well at West Ham. The fans would love him at Upton Park.
"He might not have had the best time at Liverpool but he did very well with Newcastle.
"In the games I watched him play for Liverpool he did well. He wasnâ€™t a prolific goalscorer but he added another dimension to the team."
