West Ham will be unable to complete a permanent move for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll. The striker is currently on loan at Upton Park.

Manager of the Hammers, Sam Allardyce, today confirmed that the player would cost too much money.

In a statement he said: "So, in one fell swoop the financial restrictions mean Andy Carroll can’t sign for us from Liverpool because it’s too expensive, even if he wanted to. Even if I wanted him, even if the chairmen wanted him, even if we all wanted him – which we do – it will not be allowed to happen."
