Newcastle and West Ham face transfer battle

Andy Carroll, Liverpool strikerNewcastle are considering another attempt to sign Andy Carroll after West Ham agreed a fee to take him on loan, The Daily Mail report.

The Liverpool forward is not part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans and after the purchase of Fabio Borini the England international is thought to be allowed to leave Anfield if a potential suitor arises.

The Hammers are eager to strengthen their attacking options ahead of the their Premier League return, and as such have agreed a £2 million loan fee with the Reds for a season-long deal.

Carroll will then be subject to a £17 million permanent deal to Upton Park next summer should Sam Allardyce’s men stay in the top flight.

However, Carroll is believed to prefer a move back to his former club, who are ready to enter into the bidding and secure a deal for him in forthcoming days.
