Reliable journalist: West Ham will sell hitman for £20m, three more could leave
West Ham are prepared to sell striker Andy Carroll for £20million but in a dramatic turn of events, it has also emerged that the Hammers are willing to listen to offers for a number of other players, according to a reliable source.
Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol announced on his official Twitter account that not only would the Irons accept a £20m offer for Carroll but the club would also be prepared to listen to offers for one of Diafra Sakho, Javier Hernandez or Andre Ayew.
West Ham prepared to sell Andy Carroll for £20m. Will also listen to sensible offers for Hernandez, Ayew or Sakho

Carroll, 29, has only managed 14 outings for the Irons during this campaign in what has been another injury-blighted season.
Football Insider verdict:
West Ham may want £20m for Carroll but it is highly doubtful that Chelsea would be willing to stump up such a large amount of cash for a player who is so injury prone and is in fact currently sidelined with an ankle issue. Moyes has already previously stated that he does not want to see anyone leave the club and wants to make additions to his side. Therefore, unless the Hammers dramatically lower their valuation Carroll will remain in the east end of London. It seems more likely that Hernandez will be given the green light to go after only today being linked with a move to Turkish champions Besiktas.
