The poll run by BBC Sport i though to refer to his move from Newcastle to Liverpool in 2011 rather his move to West Ham.
On 31 January 2011, Liverpool put in a bid of £30 million for Andy Carroll, which was rejected. Newcastle then accepted a bid of £35 million and, following the agreement of personal terms and a medical, the transfer was completed shortly before the 11.00pm deadline.
In August 2012, Carroll signed with West Ham on a season-long loan. Liverpool initially wanted a £17 million option for a permanent transfer written into the loan deal, but dropped the demand to facilitate the deal, and West Ham ultimately paid a £2 million loan arrangement fee and also all of Carroll’s £80,000-a-week Liverpool wages.
In May 2013, West Ham and Liverpool agreed a fee of around £15.5 million to make the loan move permanent, pending Carroll agreeing to the move, and then to personal terms. Carroll signed a six-year contract with West Ham on 19th June 2013 on a £85,000 per week basic wage.
