Carlton Cole: Expected to re-sign for West Ham

Carlton Cole: Expected to re-sign for West Ham

Cole is currently available as a free agent after reaching the end of a previous deal at West Ham United.

Various clubs were linked with an approach over the summer, but the England international is still without a club.

He has returned to training with West Ham as a result, in an effort to earn fresh terms, and Sam Allardyce has admitted to being keen on getting the powerful frontman back on board.

With it expected that he will re-sign for the Hammers, Redknapp concedes that he will have to look elsewhere for support to Charlie Austin - his only fit forward.

He said after a 1-0 victory over Yeovil Town on Saturday: "We want a striker, but clubs won't let them out on loan.

"We need help up front, that's for sure.

"Charlie's doing a good job but he needs some help. He can't keep doing it in every game, we need to take the pressure off him.

"Carlton's a great player, but I think he's going to sign for West Ham."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
