Andy Carroll’s proposed move from Liverpool to West Ham have reportedly stalled over the striker’s demands for an increased pay packet according to The Mirror.

The two clubs have already agreed terms on the move and are ready to conclude a deal.

Carroll initially put the brakes on the move as he was hoping that his boyhood club Newcastle United, or a team playing in European competition, might come in for his signature.

That has not been forthcoming, and it appears increasingly likely that Carroll will be moving to Upton Park should he wish to play first team football next season.

Carroll spent the last season out on loan with the Hammers after being told by Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers that he was unlikely to get a game should he remain at Anfield.

Rodgers has reiterated that to the striker and it appears that Liverpool are keen offload Carroll in order to raise funds for reinvesting in the transfer market.

But Carroll has reportedly decided that he wants a pay rise if he is to return to West Ham. The Hammers paid his £80,000 a week salary during his loan spell, but Carroll has now informed the East London club he wants an additional £20,000 a week.
