The final twist in the Andy Carroll transfer ordeal might be coming to pass, at least until next January/Summer.

Sky Sports are reporting that they understand that Carroll will be going to West Ham on loan before tomorrow’s 11pm deadline.

If that becomes reality then I think it must almost certainly include a hefty loan fee to help Brendan Rodgers in his pursuit of transfer targets.

Fair to say that Newcastle’s ‘pursuit’ of Andy Carroll has divided fans and exactly how serious United’s chase is/was, is anybody’s guess.
