    England striker Andy Carroll left Liverpool Thursday on a season-long loan deal to English Premier League rivals West Ham United with an option to buy at the end of that period.
    Carroll was a club record £35 million ($55.24 million) signing by Liverpool from Newcastle in January 2011, but has not found favor under new manager Brendan Rogers.
    Kenny Dalglish signed him as a replacement for Fernando Torres after the Spaniard departed to Chelsea but he has scored only 11 goals in 58 appearances for Liverpool.
    Carroll did show improved form at the end of last season and forced his way into the England squad at Euro 2012.
