West Ham are ready to cave in to Andy Carroll’s wage demands according to The Daily Mail.

The Hammers have already agreed terms on a deal with Carroll’s club Liverpool and had expected a move to go through earlier in the week.

But the transfer was put on hold with Carroll keen to wait and see if other clubs would come in for him.

There has so far been no other interest but Carroll claimed he was happy to stick it out unless West Ham met his wage demands, thought to be in the region of a hundred-thousand pounds a week.

The Hammers have now decided to cave in to the player’s demands after Liverpool agreed to foot some of the bill for his extra salary.

Liverpool are desperate to get rid of Carroll after a disappointing time at Anfield for the Geordie hit man. He arrived at the club from Newcastle United for a record thirty-five million pounds back in January 2011. But he failed to replicate the form he enjoyed in the North-East and found himself surplus to requirement following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as manager last summer.

It is thought that Liverpool are receiving from West Ham less than half the fee they paid to Newcastle two and a half years ago.
