Gold confident of Carroll deal

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold yesterday took to Twitter to confirm that the club’s chances of signing Andy Carroll have improved.

The Hammers had a bid of £15million pounds accepted by Liverpool last month, leaving the 24 year old to decide whether or not he wanted to move to Upton Park permanently.

Responding to a supporters question on the social media site, Gold said: “The chances of AC joining West Ham has risen from 50/50 to 75/25 in the last few hours. Will keep u posted.”

The statement comes just days after it was revealed that negotiations had hit a stumbling block following the England international’s representative’s demands of £100,000 a week for the player.

That figure, which represented a £20,000 pay rise, was dismissed out of hand by West Ham who paid the players wages whilst he was on loan with the club last season.

The former Newcastle United forward scored seven goals in twenty-four league appearances during his season-long spell which ended last month.
