West Ham are ready to offer new terms to Andy Carroll.
The Sun says Carroll is just weeks away from becoming a free agent at the end of a whopping six year contract, having played just one full game this season.
He has cost West Ham around £6 million this year alone in wages and other costs including medical bills - in return for one goal.
But a club insider said: “There's an argument for it. Any deal would be structured completely differently to the current one.
“A minimal basic salary plus heavily incentivised payments in return for starts and goals and things like that. That would put the onus on him to be fit and ready.
“There is sympathy for the player. The club has grown tired of all the setbacks but if he can stay fit and it costs West Ham next to nothing, there's not much to lose.
“There have been early discussions about it at the club. But if I were Andy or advising him, I'd probably be thinking it would be wise to stay at West Ham."
