Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is set to undergo a medical at West Ham on Wednesday ahead of a £15m move to West Ham.
Carroll has been on loan with West Ham since 2012, scoring 7 goals in 24 appearances for the Hammers.
After agreeing a transfer fee will Liverpool in may, the England international remained uncertain about the move ahead of a World Cup year.
Carroll did not feature in two of England’s post season friendlies against republic of Ireland and Brazil due to a heel injury he picked up towards the end of last season.
Coupled with previous issues with hamstring and knee, West Ham chairman David Gold has prompted that the former Newcastle FC striker’s medical will be a thorough one, given the fee involved and his record of injury problems.
Carroll was signed by former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish from Newcastle United on transfer deadline day in January of 2011 for £35m, a record fee for a British player.
He went on to score six goals in 44 league appearances for Liverpool and was loaned to west Ham in late August 2012, following the arrival of Brendan Rodgers.
