Liverpool and England striker Andy Carroll has joined West Ham on a season-long loan, the Merseyside club have confirmed.
Carroll's position at Anfield has been the subject of considerable speculation since new manager Brendan Rodgers took charge earlier in the summer.
The 23-year-old had also been linked with a return to former club Newcastle but the Hammers have now acquired his services for the 2012-13 season.
