Liverpool are reported to have accepted West Ham's loan offer for England international striker Andy Carroll.
News breaking in the last few minutes via the BBC suggests that the Gateshead-born hitman is set to move to the Boleyn Ground for the entirety of the 2012/13 season after the Merseysiders agreed to accept United's £2million offer.
A further £17million will follow to make the deal permanent should West Ham retain their Premier League place - as reported here on KUMB.com last week.
Carroll- whose agent Mark Curtis also represents Sam Allardyce, Kevin Nolan and James Tomkins - cost Liverpool £35million when they signed the 23-year-old from Newcastle United just 18 months ago.
We'll have more on this as the story develops.
