Andy Carroll: Has admitted that his future at West Ham depends on Liverpool

Carroll was one of the stars of West Ham's 4-2 victory over Reading, and received a rapturous ovation from the Upton Park crowd both during and after the game.

Asked after the win if it was to be Carroll's last game for the club, Allardyce praised his striker.

"I hope not," Allardyce said.

"I think that we all know we would like to secure his signature. We have got to sort that out with Liverpool and hopefully that becomes fruitful.

"The fans have made it plain and clear what they would like to see with Andy."

Carroll himself spoke after the game regarding his future, and believes that it is up to Liverpool to decide his fate.

"It's not up to me to decide," said Carroll. "We need to see what Liverpool have to say and see what West Ham have to say.

"West Ham is a great club and I've enjoyed every minute of it."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
