West Ham United has acquired England striker Andy Carroll on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
"It's great to be here at West Ham and all signed up - I just can't wait to get started now," the 23-year-old Carroll. "I want to be playing games and obviously hoping to score some goals. I know the manager well and some of the lads, so it is nice for me to come to a place where I know people."
Carroll joined Liverpool from Newcastle United in January 2011 for a club record fee of $55.34, replacing the Chelsea-bound Fernando Torres. But Carroll scored just 11 goals in 58 appearances for Liverpool.
