The transfers just keep coming now. The latest is Andy Carroll moving to West Ham on loan.

Hammers net Carroll

West Ham United are delighted to announce the signing of England striker Andy Carroll on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old has moved to the Boleyn Ground from Liverpool for the remainder of the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League campaign, with the Hammers having the option to complete a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee next summer.

Carroll is available for this weekend's home match against Fulham, and becomes immediately fantasy-relevant. At his price, and with West Ham's decent run of matches, Carroll could make a very interesting enabler.

He will also be reunited with Kevin Nolan, who had his best fantasy runs playing in the hole behind the big striker. So that may be another option to consider.
