ENGLAND'S BEST

Patrick Barclay reviews the highs and lows from the 2012-13 Premier League season.

West Ham have reportedly agreed to a fee with Liverpool to sign striker Andy Carroll on a permanent basis.

Carroll played the final match of his season-long loan from Anfield in the Hammers' 4-2 Premier League win over Reading on Sunday.

His seven goals, including a late-season flurry, earned him a call-up to the latest England squad and Hammers boss Sam Allardyce had said keeping him at Upton Park was a priority.

Former club Newcastle and newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Monaco were reportedly keen on the 6ft 3in frontman but a deal is in place to extend his stay in East London, according to Sky Sports sources.

Carroll moved to Liverpool from Newcastle in a £35million deal in January 2011, but struggled to make his mark on Merseyside and has scored just six Premier League goals for the Reds in 44 games.
