West Ham to sign 35million striker?

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.
