West Ham express interest in Carroll


Soccer: West Ham co-owner David Gold has confirmed the Hammers would be interested in signing Andy Carroll on loan should he be made available. New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers yesterday admitted striker Carroll could be allowed to leave Anfield on loan, stating it was something he would look at, although no enquiries had been received.

Newly-promoted West Ham have been strongly linked with Carroll in light of Rodgers’ remarks, and Gold has opted not to distance himself from the suggestion. Speaking to BBC Sport, Gold said: “I am not aware of any talks between ourselves or Liverpool over Andy Carroll.

“But that’s not to say we don’t have an interest should he become available.”

Carroll has struggled since his club-record €40 million switch to Liverpool from Newcastle in January 2011 at a time when the Reds shipped Fernando Torres on to Chelsea for more than €55 million. The 23-year-old has scored just 11 goals in 56 appearances, although did make the England squad for the Euro 2012 finals under new manager Roy Hodgson, scoring in the group game against Sweden.
