Andy Carroll could make his move to West Ham permanent next week as he prepares to have final talks with the Hammers over the transfer from Liverpool according to the Daily Express.

The player is due back from his holiday next week and he will then sit down with the clubs owners and talk about moving to the club on a permanent basis.

Carroll spent last season on loan at West Ham and formed a successful partnership up front with former Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan.

West Ham offered Liverpool the £15.5 million transfer fee at the end of the season and the Reds accepted the offer but Carroll has taken a while deciding whether he wants to move to Upton Park permanently or not.

Reports suggested that Carroll was reluctant to make the move permanent and was instead keen on a move back to his former club Newcastle.

However, while Newcastle boss Alan Pardew wanted to bring Carroll back to the north east, the club weren’t willing to pay the £15.5 million transfer fee and would only go as high as £10 million.

It now appears that Carroll has made his decision and will sign for the Hammers sometime next week.

He could be joined by another striker this summer, with West Ham co-owner David Gold promising another quality striker to fans on Twitter.
