Striker set for loan exit
Liverpool have agreed a £2m loan deal with West Ham for Andy Carroll, who looks set to spend this season at Upton Park.
The England international spoke to Brendan Rodgers about his future following Euro 2012 and speculation has been rife that he would be on the move from Anfield after just 56 first-team appearances. Carroll has been a target for his former club Newcastle, but the Magpies have been unable to agree a fee with the Reds and now West Ham looked to have sealed a loan switch. The year-long long deal is with a view to a £17million switch to the capital, although Carroll has indicated that he does not want to leave Liverpool on a permanent basis. The 23-year-old, who moved to Merseyside in a £35million deal in January 2011, will team up again with Sam Allardyce, who both worked together during the manager's short tenure at Newcastle.
