David Gold has revealed that Andy Carroll passed his West Ham United medical on Tuesday evening ahead of a reported £15m move from Liverpool to Upton Park.

The 24-year-old striker is set to pen a reported six-year deal with the Hammers, worth “£15.5m plus £2m extras” – and end a miserable two-and-half year spell as Reds player.

Carroll scored seven goals in 21 top-flight appearances for the Hammers last term after joining the east London outfit on a season-long loan from Liverpool in August.

And Hammers joint-chairman Gold, who has spoken of his desire to partner Carroll with Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku, revealed the England international has successfully completed a medical on Tuesday evening.

Carroll managed to score six top-flight goals in 44 Premier League appearances for the Reds after completing a club-record £35m move to the 18-time English champions from Newcastle United in January 2011.

The Gateshead-born striker, who scored 31 times in 81 games for the Magpies, is hoping to add to his nine England caps ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
