Andy Carroll’s imminent move to West Ham is going to be worth a huge £44million, according to The Sun.

The Hammers and Liverpool have agreed a fee – thought to be around £16million – for the England striker and he is set to have talks with manager Sam Allardyce in the early stages of next.

It is believed that co-owner David Sullivan has agreed to offer Carroll a five-year, £100,000 per week contract, smashing the club’s current wage structure. The deal will also include £3million in add-ons, which will complete the £44m package for Carroll.

However, Carroll is still hopeful of securing a move to Newcastle United or a club playing in Europe next season. Despite this, it is thought he will agree to sign for the Hammers due to there being no current interest from other clubs.

Carroll scored seven goals in 26 Premier League appearances while on loan with West Ham last season.
