Joe Cole: Understood to be wanted back at old club West Ham

Cole has been linked with a move away from Anfield after failing to establish himself under Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, making only six Premier League appearances so far this season, all of which came off the bench.

The midfielder, whose four starts this term have come in cup competitions, also saw his early campaign disrupted by a hamstring injury.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp confirmed on Tuesday he is interested in signing the 31-year-old and is planning talks with Rodgers.

But he could face competition for the midfielder's signature, with West Ham the latest to enquire and Reading also understood to be interested as they look to boost their survival hopes.

Cole began his senior career with the Hammers back in 1998 after coming through the youth ranks in East London.

The midfielder was linked with a return to his boyhood club on loan in the summer after spending last season at Ligue 1 side Lille but no deal materialised.

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
