• Hammers move fast to land Carroll
    09:49 | 19/06/2013

    WEST HAM have smashed their transfer record to capture Andy Carroll in a deal worth £55million.

    Panicking Hammers rushed forward plans to sign the Liverpool striker to head off a late challenge from his home-town club Newcastle.

    Carroll landed at Heathrow from a holiday in Las Vegas at 11am yesterday and was whisked away to a private hospital in Essex where he passed a medical.

    Joint chairman David Gold tweeted: “We managed to bring Andy’s medical forward and I’m delighted he passed with flying colours.”
    Carroll has agreed a six-year deal with an option for a seventh, worth £100,000 a week which could see him pocket a staggering £36m.
    West Ham have also agreed to pay Liverpool a club-record £16m plus £3m in add-ons.
    The Hammers moved fast after concerns that Newcastle director of football Joe Kinnear was about to hijack the deal.
    Kinnear stated signing a striker was a priority and West Ham were aware Carroll was keen to head back to his old club.
    The England ace, 24, spent last season on loan at Upton Park but suffered a heel injury towards the end of the campaign.
    He had initially been due to have his medical later this week.
    But a Hammers insider said: “The comments from Joe worried us.
    “Andy had been keen on staying at Liverpool or going to a top-five club or home to Newcastle, where he has two kids. So we had to move fast.”
