Sam ups Andy bid



Hammers co-owner David Sullivan gave boss Sam Allardyce the green light to start talks about landing the Liverpool striker on a season-long loan.

That could lead to Carroll making a £15million switch in 12 months’ time.

Now the whole deal is likely to rest on the outcome of face-to-face talks with Kop boss Brendan Rodgers as the £35million frontman seeks to discover exactly where — or if — he features in Liverpool’s plans.

Rodgers’ refusal this week to rule out Carroll leaving Anfield after 18 months will hardly have filled him with hope.

That immediately alerted West Ham, who are desperate to strengthen ahead of their return to the top flight, although Carroll is said to be keen to stay and fight for his Reds place.

If Carroll does head south, the Hammers would have an option of turning the loan into a full-time deal should they stay up.

Any loan deal would mean Liverpool having to wait a year before they could bank a transfer fee. But the removal of some — or all — of Carroll’s £80,000 wage packet would appeal to Rodgers.

WEST HAM CO-OWNER DAVID GOLD EYES DEAL FOR LIVERPOOL STAR ANDY CARROLL



WEST HAM co-owner David Gold has confirmed the Hammers are interested in a loan deal for Andy Carroll.

Starsport revealed yesterday that the newly-promoted outfit were interested in taking the Liverpool and England star to Upton Park.


And Gold said: “I am not aware of any talks between ourselves and Liverpool over Andy Carroll.


“But that’s not to say we don’t have an interest should he become available.”


The 23-year-old has hit just 11 goals in 56 Liverpool appearances, but he did score for England against Sweden at Euro 2012.

West Ham ready to make Carroll a Hammer as Gold admits interest in £35m Kop striker





West Ham have upped the ante in their bid to sign Andy Carroll after co-owner David Gold hinted he'd be ready to bankroll the move.

Manager Sam Allardyce wants to make a marquee signing ahead of his club's return to the Barclays Premier League and West Ham are prepared to break their budget for the Liverpool No 9.

The Hammers are proposing an initial loan with a view to buying Carroll for around £15million.

That would represent a huge loss for Liverpool, who signed the forward for £35m in January 2011.

And although Gold said official talks hadn't taken part between the two clubs, he admitted the London side are interested in signing Carroll.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Gold said: 'I am not aware of any talks between ourselves or Liverpool over Andy Carroll.

'But that's not to say we don't have an interest should he become available.'

Carroll, 23, is facing an uncertain future at Anfield after Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers refused to dismiss the idea he could leave on loan.

Fulham could yet hold a trump card with Dempsey as Rodgers is a confirmed admirer of the USA forward, who is in the final 12 months of his contract at Craven Cottage.

The interest from Italy in Carroll, who is on holiday, is not just from AC Milan but it is debatable whether a move to Serie A would appeal to him.

Carroll, who has scored 11 goals in 59 appearances for Liverpool, has not given any indication he wants to leave Merseyside but may struggle for regular starts in Rodgers' new regime.

Significantly, Rodgers would not give any assurances about Carroll's future when presented with the opportunity on Monday and a switch to Upton Park could prove enticing.

Allardyce's style of play would suit Carroll, while he would also link up with close friend and former Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan.

Top 10 transfer rumours of the summer so far



SunSport has put together the 10 biggest transfer stories that are doing the rounds this summer, from Robin van Persie's expected Arsenal exit to Manchester United's pursuit of the latest bright young thing out of Brazil.



THE Dutchman is refusing to sign a new deal at Arsenal as he has grown tired with their lack of progress. Manchester City are the most likely destination, but rivals Manchester United are in the hunt too.

Rating: 9/10

Andy Carroll to AC Milan

NEW Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers does not seem convinced with the Geordie hitman, even though AC Milan’s transfer guru is. A loan move to West Ham has also been mooted.

Rating: 4/10

Luka Modric to Real Madrid

IT seems the diminutive Croat has had enough of White Hart Lane and Jose Mourinho is ready to offer him an exit route to the Bernabeu. Chelsea, who had a £40million bid rejected last summer, are also keen.

Rating: 8/10

Lucas Moura to Manchester United

THE Brazilian whizkid has been tipped as one of the hottest young talents in South America. The attacking midfielder has opened the door to a move in recent days after “things changed” at club Sao Paulo.

Rating: 5/10

Demba Ba to Galatasaray

BA has a £7million release clause in his contract which has a host of clubs scrambling for his services, particularly after he smashed in 16 league goals last season. Toon team-mate Yohan Cabaye, who emerged as a shock target for Barcelona today, is adamant his club must retain the Senegalese striker.

Rating: 5/10

Joao Moutinho to Tottenham

ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS is looking to add the Portuguese maestro to his Tottenham ranks as he plans for the expected departure of Luka Modric. Moutinho, who played under AVB at Porto, is also wanted by Manchester United.

Rating: 7/10

Fabio Borini to Liverpool

BRENDAN RODGERS seems intent on signing the Italian striker from Roma to bolster his strikeforce. Roma striker Borini played under Rodgers in the Chelsea reserves and on loan at Swansea.

Rating: 9/10

Oscar to Tottenham

THE creative Brazilian is another potential Luka Modric replacement that AVB is considering. Internacional are demanding a £20m fee for Oscar’s services – Spurs are looking to pay less. Chelsea have also been linked.

Rating: 4/10

Theo Walcott to Chelsea

WALCOTT is devastated by Robin van Persie’s decision not to renew his contract at Arsenal and is ready to follow the Dutchman out the exit door. The England winger has one year left on his current contract and Chelsea are monitoring the situation.

Rating: 3/10

Hugo Lloris to Tottenham

FRANCE No1 Lloris has been told he can leave Lyon and Spurs have bid £13m. The French giants are holding out for a fee of £16m.

Rating: 8/10

So who’s next for a takeover?







ENGLISH football is under attack from a foreign legion whose weapon of choice is bundles of cash.


LEEDS

GLORIOUS history and massive fan base gives them big appeal. The 37,000-capacity Elland Road ground is a big factor as they do not need to move.

Estimated cost: £40m

Buyability: 5/5

DERBY COUNTY

PAST glory days during Brian Clough’s era and a big stadium. Owned by Americans but new investors would boost hopes of returning to the Prem.

Est cost: £35m

Buyability: 4/5

CRYSTAL PALACE

FREE of debt since 2010 takeover and youth set-up producing exciting young prospects. Loyal fans and the potential to expand.

Est cost: £25m

Buyability: 4/5

SHEFFIELD UNITED

HAVE experienced the Premier League but are now in the third tier and missed out on promotion last season. Huge potential.

Est cost: £15m

Buyability: 4/5

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY

BACK in the Championship and are dreaming of back-to-back promotions. Stadium is big enough for the Premier League — just need the players.

Est cost: £20m

Buyability: 4/5

COVENTRY

WOULD be available cheaply but stadium needs to be bought from the council. They are currently paying rent to play there. Would be starting from scratch.

Est cost: £5m

Buyability: 3/5


Overseas investors are plotting their next targets following the change of ownership at Nottingham Forest this week.

The Kuwaiti-based Al-Hasawi family are now in charge at the City Ground and are looking to take Forest back to the biggest stage.

And wealthy figures from the Middle East, Far East and Russia reckon they can also turn sleeping giants into major forces again with their bottomless pits of money.

Reading sealed promotion last season and then Anton Zingarevich completed his takeover at the Madejski Stadium.

He has already bolstered Brian McDermott’s squad with Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak for next season.

And the aim for these new backers is to get in the Premier League and stay there.

Experts reckon Leeds are the club most attractive to potential investors.

Bahrain’s Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Mubarak Al Khalifa is being linked with them and it is easy to see why he would want them.

They have a huge fan base, a well-known history and a squad capable of Championship promotion next season.

But one of the most important factors is the Elland Road 37,000-seater stadium.

Investors need to be sure they are not splashing out £100million on a new ground.

Other clubs ripe for new owners are Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.

Derby have an ideal stadium for the Prem but have not returned since 2008 when they were relegated before the end of March. Crystal Palace have loyal fans and a decent infrastructure producing superb young players.

And balancing the books will be a factor when Financial Fair Play comes in.

Coventry also have potential — despite dropping into the third tier they still have the impressive Ricoh Arena.

These clubs will hope for the success Manchester City have enjoyed since their Abu Dhabi owners took charge.

Cardiff, Birmingham and Leicester are among those who have been subject to foreign takeovers and their owners are desperate for the Prem.

And there are also clubs in the top flight who could be targeted — Everton are one who could go to the next level with significant investment.

City’s success came after four years, and potential new owners will also be optimistic of a quick return on their money.







Liverpool are ready to make a £25m loss on striker Andy Carroll this summer, with former club Newcastle preparing a £10m bid to bring him back to the north east.

The Independent

New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas wants Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho as a possible replacement for Luka Modric. Modric is expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer and Spurs are ready to bring in Moutinho, who shone at Euro 2012 for Portugal.

talkSPORT

Porto striker Hulk has denied he is close to signing a deal to join Chelsea. The 25-year-old, who is part of the Brazil squad for this summer's Olympics, is happy to remain in Portugal.



talkSPORT

Reading are set to make a £5m bid for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe.

Metro

West Brom and Aston Villa both want Rennes midfielder Tongo Doumbia this summer.

OWEN COYLE is close to signing Leeds keeper Andy Lonergan for £200,000.

The Bolton boss asked about the ex-Preston ace last month but a move was put on hold as Leeds chased a new keeper.

But now that Paddy Kenny has agreed a switch to Elland Road from QPR, Coyle has gone back in for Lonergan.

FORMER Reading and Stoke defender Ibrahima Sonko, 31, has turned down a move to China’s Super League. He is a free agent after being let go by Ipswich.

Andy Carroll loan availability alerts supermarkets

News that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is willing to hear loan offers for Andy Carroll has alerted several supermarkets in need of someone to service their hard to reach top shelves.
Despite his height and long hair, Rodgers is concerned that Carroll will not fit into a style of football that relies on his feet, opening the door to other organisations to take on the young England striker.
Morrisons regional manager Simon Williams said, “Andy has been gifted genetically to be tall and quite strong, which makes him perfect for shelf-stacking.”
“And if rumours of his personal life are true, then he’ll fit right in with our Saturday staff.”
