West Ham co-owner David Gold has promised two major signings up front as final talks with Andy Carroll move closer.

And Gold, confident the deal is going to happen, reassured his Twitter followers they would be signing a top-notch name to play alongside him.
Andy Carroll looks set to turn down a permanent £15 million move to West Ham after telling Liverpool he will fight for his place at Anfield, Goal understands. The 24-year-old striker is ready to accept a role as a bit-part player at Liverpool next season in order to force his way into the side following a successful loan spell at Upton Park.
Sam Allardyce has confirmed his top priority in the summer is to sign Liverpool striker Andy Carroll, and West Ham have started talks with Liverpool about the striker, who wasrecalledto the England squad last week.

Sam Allardyce has revealed he's hopeful West Ham can tie up a permanent deal for on-loan Liverpool striker Andy Carroll ‘as quickly as possible'. The 24-year-old has proved a popular figure among Hammers fans, and despite only bagging seven goals, has won a recall to the England team following a good run of form.
West Ham are set to open talks with Liverpool over a permanent move for striker Andy Carroll and hope to finalize a deal in the next few weeks. Carroll has become a fans favourite at Upton Park following his season long-loan move from the Merseyside club at the start of the season. Despite facing lengthy periods on the sidelines with knee and hamstring problems, the England forward has still managed to score seven goals and has played his part in helping West Ham challenge for a top half finish.
If a club wins both the home fixture and the away fixture during a league season then they are said to have "done the double" over that side. In the Premier League during the 2012/2013 season 16 of the 20 sides did the double over a rival.
The following lists show the teams that each club in the Premier League managed to do the double against.
Santi Cazorla has had an amazing debut season with Arsenal. He looked like he had been playing with his Gunners team mates for years and seemed to have no problem adapting to the different style of football played in the English Premier League to what he was used to in the Spanish La Liga. The 28-year old midfielder feels that the Premier League is actually better for him.
West Ham and newly promoted Crystal Palace will go head-to-head as they both attempt to bring Barcelona defender Marc Bartra to the Premier League. The young centre-back is best known for his unexpectedly big role in Barca's depleted backline for the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich.
Liverpool have accepted a £15m offer from West Ham United for Andy Carroll, a £20m loss on their record transfer fee inside 28 months, but face a struggle to convince the striker to sever his Anfield ties for Upton Park. Carroll enjoyed an impressive, yet injury-hit season on loan with Sam Allardyce's team, who has moved quickly to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent basis following the end of the Premier League season.
And so, even in the dying embers of its latest edition, the Premier League didn't fail in living up to expectations, signing off the 2012-13 season in incredible fashion.
The first 5-5 draw of its era, a nail-biting hunt for fourth spot between Tottenham and Arsenal and a handsome helping of 36 goals across 10 fixtures all made for a very entertaining finale to the Premier League campaign.
Newcastle gained a good point and a clean sheet at West Ham today when we drew 0-0 with West Ham, but Wigan won 3-2 at West Brom in a surprise result, so we are now 2 points worse off than we were before the game today, with Wigan only 2 points behind us with a [...]
Tomorrow's game at West Ham is vital for Newcastle United if we are to start to extricate ourselves from the grip of relegation and it's very important that we take something out of this game. Newcastle have fallen apart since we were knocked out of the Europa league by Benfica who reached [...]
Stoke City The Premier League's freefall team, and after victory for Sunderland last weekend, suddenly the most likely team to be dragged into the relegation battle. Manager Tony Pulis this week talked of five cup finals, but statements such as "the season starts now" rather questions his performance until now.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed both Liverpool and West ham have agreed a fee to sign Andy Carroll following his successful season-long loan spell at Upton Park and all that is pending is agreeing personal terms with the 24 year old.
The fee is rumored to be around £15 million and the West ham boss is hopeful to secure a deal once the player is back from his Holidays.

It is acknowledged among Arsenal fans and neutrals alike that the club need to buy a defensive midfielder this summer because of Abou Diaby's injury problems and the fact there is no cover for him since Alex Song left last summer. There have already been a few names thrown around for who should be bought but I believe that the club should be looking to West Ham's Mohamed Diame.
Arsenal moved closer to getting rid of one of Arsene Wenger's most unsuccessful signings of recent times, as the French striker Marouane Chamakh revealed that he is willing to return to France with his old club Bordeaux.
Chamakh lost his confidence very quickly after arriving at Arsenal, and even on his 5 month loan at West Ham he only managed to make two starts for the Hammers.

Manchester United came from behind twice against West Ham United to secure another point in the Premier League on Wednesday evening. West Ham took the lead early on through Ricardo Vaz Te. Antonio Valencia then brought United level before Mohammed Diame put West Ham back in front after the break. Robin Van Persie then scored a questionable equalizer to draw United level again in the 77th minute.
It's not often the manager gets the blog picture. Even stranger coming in off the back of a match that had more than enough candidates. But I think it the best indication of how West Ham took their match against Utd last night, and how gutted they were not to win. A late Van Persie conversion preventing that, prompting fury from the Hammers and quotes about Utd involving such words as: "We played like Champions.
Occasional England team-mates Andy Carroll and Wayne Rooney clashed during last night's West Ham versus Manchester United match. The pair tangled at the corner that led to Carroll's head-first assault on David De Gea. After a bit of usual set-piece pushing and shoving, Rooney appeared to tread on Carroll's foot, Sunday League style.
[O]f course by its very definition the Football League is weak – comparatively. While it's true that West Ham and Southampton skilfully negotiated the step up to the Premier League this past year, both enjoyed wage structures and transfer budgets way beyond the scope of second tier clubs. Yesterday's opening post on thisfour day SWOT analysis salvo perhaps painted too rosy a picture of the League's attributes.
Folks living on Green Street in east London might want to start counting down the days before West Ham leave the Boleyn Ground.
After receiving a 99 year lease on March 22, West Ham were given approval on Tuesday to begin converting the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London to a 54,000 seat arena that will become the new home of the Irons in 2016.
Not content with being award the Olympic Stadium as their new ground, West Ham have now taken over the London 2012 rowing lake. The Hammers took to Dorney Lake for a team-building rowing session with Olympic silver medalist Mark Hunter. As you might expect with a Sam Allardyce team-building session, the water-based fun was not [.
I was only seven years old when we lost the league to West Ham in 1995 and I remember shedding bitter, youthful tears as they title slipped by. My dad told me not to worry, "Fergie will be there next season," he said and "we'll win something next season, United always move on." He was [...]
Hunting around the betting sites looking for the bookies' choices to be the new Manchester United manager this week, we were reminded that perennial vacant job dark horse Alan Curbishley is still out of work and featuring surprisingly high in some lists of contenders to replace Sir Alex Ferguson. Despite the fairly generous odds on [.
A stirring second-half performance was not enough for Liverpool's U18s as they suffered a 2-1 defeat by West Ham on Saturday. Steve Cooper's side fell behind early on against the Hammers and a defensive error allowed the home team to double their advantage before the half-time interval. The young Reds rallied after the break, increasing both the tempo and their pressing, and were rewarded with a goal from Alex O'Hanlon around the hour mark.
Joe Hart makes a mess of Andy Carroll' speculative shot as he lets it slip through his hands then his legs as West Ham grabbed an injury-time consolation goal at the Ethihad bit like the clubs feeble attempt at retaining their Premier League crown really, lots of slip-ups.
Frank Lampard as we know has scored 200 goals for Chelsea and is just two goals away from equalling Bobby Tambling's record. The problem is, Lampard hasn't featured much since scoring against West Ham playing in his favoured position back on 17th March.
Since then, he has been deployed by Rafa Benitez in a much deeper role and with a possible eight games remaining (including the Europa League final if we make it), we have to question whether or not he will get the chance to break that record.
West Ham United have published a video interview with Vice Chairman Karren Brady, where she goes into more detail regarding the architectural plans for the Olympic Stadium, which West Ham will be moving into for the start of the 2016 season.
Tottenham Hotspur, Leyton Orient and West Ham United were all interested in moving to the 54,000-seat stadium, but West Ham United won in the end despite Leyton Orient's ground just being 750 yards away from the Olympic Park.
Bologna playmaker Alessandro Diamanti is the most fouled player in Europe so far this season. While you might assume that Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi would be on the receiving end of most rough treatment, it is actually the former West Ham player who's taken a bit of a battering this season. According to figures [.
