MOST COMMENTED

West Ham United on Wednesday signed Andy Carroll from Liverpool on a six-year deal for a club record $23.5 million. Although only 24, Carroll is already one of the most expensive Englishmen in history, having commanded more than $78 million in transfer fees during his career, which has taken him from Newcastle to Liverpool and now West Ham.

Carroll completed a successful season-long loan with the Hammers last season. "It's fantastic for me to be here. I really enjoyed last season, and that shows in me coming back and making it permanent," the striker said. "The fans, the lads and the club itself have been great to me, and what I wanted to do was come back here and play football.”

He added: "Getting promoted the season before last, then finishing where we did - we did great, and it can only get better for us. The way the club's being run, obviously getting the new stadium and everything like that, it's only going up."

In March it was announced that West Ham would be the main tenant for the Olympic Stadium beginning in August 2016.
