Andy Carroll will join West Ham from Liverpool if he passes a medical, according to Jack Sullivan – the son of Hammers’ co-chairman David.
Sullivan junior says the England international will sign a six-year deal at Upton Park, while the transfer fee could rise as high as £17.5m.
Various reports suggest West Ham will pay Carroll in the region of £110,000-a-week, making him the best paid player in the club’s history.

The 24-year-old spent this season on loan at West Ham from Anfield and finished the campaign with seven goals and four assists in 24 Premier League appearances.
But Carroll scored just 11 goals in 58 appearances for Liverpool since arriving from Newcastle in a staggering £35m deal in January 2011.
