Sullivan: Carroll deal agreed with Liverpool

.

Liverpool have agreed to sell striker Andy Carroll to West Ham at the end of the season, according to Hammers co-owner David Sullivan.

Carroll signed for Liverpool from Newcastle for £35m but failed to make an impact at Anfield, and was loaned to West Ham in the summer of 2012.

However, Carroll's time with Sam Allardyce's side has been plagued by injury and he has managed just one goal from 11 Premier League appearances. 

Despite the fact that West Ham have previously agreed a deal with Liverpool, Sullivan did admit that an agreement is yet to be reached between West Ham and the player.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail, Sullivan said: "I am often asked about Andy Carroll's deal. 

"It is a season-long loan. Liverpool had an option to take him back in January, but he has been injured.

"West Ham have an agreement with Liverpool to sign him at the end of the season, but we have no agreement with the player.

"It was his desire to come to West Ham to prove himself to Liverpool and that hasn't changed.

"He has had injuries since he came, but he is back to fitness now and we have 15 games left . . . we need some goals and some points, so let's see."

Sullivan did not say how much Carroll would be signed for but Liverpool fans can expect a massive loss on the fee tat they splashed out on the 24-year-old two years ago.
