Andy Carroll To Go Out On Season Long Loan For £6M


It seems that a loan deal has been agreed between West Ham and Liverpool for Andy Carroll, and the Geordie striker is in London taking a medical,  before he signs up for the season long loan deal in east London.

Andy Carroll – going on loan to West Ham

It had been clear for a few weeks now that Andy has no future at the Liverpool club, and West Ham have agreed to pay Carroll’s wages – reported today to be £100K/week – plus a £1M loan fee, and that will cost West Ham £6M for one season of Andy Carroll’s services  at Upton Park.

What have West Ham been smoking?

Now you know why Newcastle didn’t do the deal, because after all, we only paid £8M for Papiss Cisse outright last January, and paid £2M to Demba Ba’s agents to get him to Tyneside last summer as a free agent.

This seems an awfully expensive one year loan deal for West Ham, and no doubt Liverpool will be very happy with the deal.

The news is that Andy Carroll was told about the deal yesterday, and he agreed to it with the proviso there would be no option to make the deal permanent next May, and the striker has flown to London to have a medical and make the loan deal official, after Newcastle would not pay the loan requirements of Liverpool.

It seems Liverpool were willing enough to get Andy off the wage bill for the season, but then they will have trouble moving on unless other clubs, other than West Ham, want to sign him permanently next May.

Obviously West Ham will still hope they can persuade him to sign a permanent deal next May, but he don’t  expect Newcastle to be interested, because the transfer fee Liverpool want is still said to be around £19M, and Andy’s simply not worth that much.

Not when Newcastle bought Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba for £10M between them, so we’re not  surprised that Newcastle didn’t make the loan deal for £6M – for just one season – that’s ridiculously expensive.

    repost

    Is it safe to come back, I know I rattled a few cages at half time but they needed to be rattled.

    Second half we seemed much more content to absorb what they had to throw at us and then take control of the ball and spray it around. Never felt that we were pressing too hard for the second goal.

    I am “immensely” happy that we got through (I’ll use whatever damn word I want Niafron) and long may the European adventure continue.

    Gosling needs to get his head in gear, but hopefully he can come good as the season progresses, I feel that he will get plenty of playing time in the cup competitions.

    Obertan was excellent in the first half and towards the end of the second half was resurgent, was really pleased to see him play well.

    Onwards to Sunday and hopefully we can give Villa a spanking.

    If we were to ever sign a striker this window I never thought he was the man to go after. He already left once and we need some pace upfront anyhow.

    Silly money yet again imo, they only pay that kind of money cause he’s an english international and he cost £35 mill in his last transfer.

    If u look purely at his stats, he isn’t even worth as much as Cisse.

    We shouldn’t need a player to get injured before we strengthen the squad ffs.

    They wuz robbed…penalty and red card….naff finish second half… it was too close.

    We played a bit semi detached… did just enough…

    Positives…. Obertan and Marveaux
    Negatives… Injury to Raylor, Marvs corners, Bigi’s free kicks

    At least the Carroll saga will not get endless airings on the blog anymore.

    Now sign Remy and a sulky French RB

    nice to see Pards asking his chairman for new players, although I thought we had already identified players or they were all secure at their teams. get Carr to get his passport.. we’ve got 1 day lol

    When are we gonna see a cross like the old Solano used to supply. for a player 4ft2 he could bend/spin/lob without much effort. we’ve now used Cabaye, Marv and Bigi without success

    BS….this is probably a good deal for West Ham in the end.

    This is just a ‘face saving’ loan deal with an option to buy.

    Perhaps the option to buy is really cheap. This way, the liverpool leadership don’t seem as foolish.

    To me Pards has looked proper naffed off for a good week or so now…might just be me reading in to it wrong, but have a bad feeling something has gone on behind the scenes. Fingers crossed im wrong, a striker and defender are essential tomorrow

    errrr headline is wrong it should say Carroll HAS gone to WHUFC on loan.
    anyway in the other news it’s disgusting that pards has to go groveling to Ashley to get a player in before the deadline because of 1 player injured

    Exactly my feelings
    I think Pards is v pissed off indeed. His body language just oozes frustration and resentment.

    The Fat Controller might save money but good people management means investment too…

    Good luck for Andy, it wasnt a good deal for us, even a 6 mill loan is too much for him, 12 mill was the right price. And if fe haggle with 1 mill pound, we shouldnt givw 20 or 17 for him.
    Need a striker that can sit on the bench, and wait. Andy isnt that type.

    WWYCD exactly! We are desperate for a Striker, and still short at CB. We have an average RB and no real threat at set pieces. We need to sign these players to move forwards. By the way I have never seen Pardew so subdued!!

    Babel for cover, would take that for free.
    But I agree with bro56, i thought we knew are targets, why would you have to ask Mike to get someone in, unless Mike already said no chance, 3 million is enough!

    Man utd away is no bad thing…like someone said before, they will play their reserves….

    Bigger problem is if we get drawn away in Russia and Ukraine against the likes of Kazan or Dnipro… long journeys….small squad…little recovery time etc…could turn it into a tough season.

    Aye mate but we will see no one come through the door. We also have 1 LB on the squad list and he is pretty poor at defending
