UPDATE: Andy Carroll has completed his medical and agreed terms on his move to West Ham.
Carroll, 24, spent last season on loan to the Hammers and the two clubs agreed a fee over his permanent transfer last month.
Hammers Chairman David Gold announced via his twitter on Tuesday evening:
We managed to bring Andy's medical forward to this evening and I am delighted to informed you that he has passed with flying colours.

The son of West Ham owner David Sullivan had earlier tweeted to say that the deal in place will see the London side pay an initial £15.5m, with an additional £2m in potential bonuses.
BBC Sport report this afternoon reported:
West Ham agreed to meet the Reds’ asking price for the England forward last month.
Carroll’s medical will be thorough given the fee involved and his record of injury problems, meaning the deal may not be announced until Wednesday.
Carroll made 58 appearances for Liverpool following his £35million move from St James’ Park in January 2011, scoring 11 times.
Subject to medical Andy Carroll is now a WHU player, 6 year contract. £15.5m plus £2m of extras. Fingers crossed he medicals fine. #coyi
