Four years ago to this day, West Ham signed Liverpool forward Andy Carroll, making him the club’s most expensive ever player in the process.
Carroll signed for the Hammers for a record £15 million in the summer of 2013 after having spent the latter half of the previous season on-loan at the club.
The striker famously moved to Liverpool for an astonishing £35 million back in 2010, but a series of injuries and poor form cut short his time at Anfield.
Since joining the club, Carroll – who has still continued to struggle with his fitness – has made 110 appearances, scoring 30 goals, which included a memorable hat-trick in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Arsenal back in 2016 and his winner against Chelsea in October of 2015 – his first goal in nine months.
Perhaps the most memorable of the 28-year-old’s goals however is his bicycle kick against Crystal Palace last season, which was voted as ‘Premier League Goal of the Month’ for January 2017.
Let’s hope there are many more where that came from, Andy!
