Liverpool Football Club have confirmed that Andy Carroll has joined West Ham United on a season-long loan.

LFC confirmed the news midway through tonight’s Europa League qualifier with Hearts at Anfield.

Reports this evening suggest the London side will pay £1m in a loan fee and pay the England forward’s £80,000 per week wages.

West Ham co-owner David Gold announced on twitter:

I’m delighted to announce the signing of England striker Andy Carroll on a season-long loan deal with an option to complete a permanent deal

Carroll’s departure paves the way for Brendan Rodgers to bring in a new forward on deadline day.

Carroll told the West Ham website:

“I want to be playing games and obviously hoping to score some goals. I know the manager [Sam Allardyce] well and some of the lads, so it is nice for me to come to a place where I know people.

“I’m hoping to add a lot of goals and create a few chances. I know Sam from Newcastle and he was a massive reason for me coming. When I worked with him at Newcastle it was great so it was a no-brainer really.”

Best of luck, Andy.
