Andy Carroll will have a medical with West Ham tomorrow as he moves closer to a permanent move from Liverpool, Hammers chairman David Gold has confirmed.

Gold wrote on his Twitter account: "Andy Carroll is having his medical tomorrow."

There could be one significant hurdle for Carroll to overcome during the assessment.

The England international has been out of the country on holiday having missed out on the national team's end-of-season friendlies against Republic of Ireland and Brazil with a heel problem, with fears it could sideline him for up to four months.

But assuming there are no long-term fears over his fitness, he appears poised to complete a move several weeks after the clubs first agreed a £15million-plus deal to make his loan permanent.
