Andy Carroll has hinted he would be willing to quit Liverpool and join West Ham United on a permanent deal in the summer.

The 24-year-old scored in the Hammers’s 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday, taking his tally to six goals in 18 Premier League appearances this season.

The England international moved to Upton Park on a season-long loan from Liverpool in August after Brendan Rodgers deemed the Magpies youth graduate surplus to requirements.

Carroll’s long-term future at Anfield is still in doubt, and the striker, who joined the Reds in a £35m deal from Newcastle United in 2011, revealed he is loving life at West Ham.

“I have just got to wait and see, really,” he said. “We’ll see what happens at the end of the season.

“Obviously I don’t know what is happening so we will just have to wait and see.

“It has been great here and every minute has been fantastic. The lads have been great, the gaffer has been great and the fans are unbelievable.”

When asked whether he would be willing to join West Ham if they could agree a deal with Liverpool, he added: “We will have to wait and see. It is obviously a great club and I do not see why not.”
