Big Sam Wants To Keep Carroll

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has revealed that his side are interested in signing Andy Carroll on a permanent basis.

Carroll netted a double during their 3-1 win over West Brom on Saturday which takes his tally for the season to five since his loan move from Liverpool.

Whilst very interested in retaining the target-man’s services, Allardyce admits that the club will have to wait until the end of the season to agree terms.

"Yes, I would like him to stay but there's a lot of things that need to be done to ensure this transfer," the 58-year-old told reporters. "We'd have to wait and see until the end of the season.

"There's always a possibility of having him here full-time. When we get down to budgeting and negotiations, we'll have a look at anything that comes our way."

“Big Sam” was pleased with his side’s victory over the Baggies but the result was bitter-sweet with the news that George McCartney had a medial ligament injury.

"The only down side to today was that George McCartney has got injured again," he said. "I would have thought (that he is out for the season), it's a re-occurrence of the same injury, which is a big disappointment for him and for us.

"We're disappointed for George as he's been so eager to come back and with the little run out we gave him, sadly he's gone down with an injury again."
