Liverpool winger 'on the verge' of Anfield exit - reports

Published Add your comment

Joe Cole is reportedly set to be loaned out by Liverpool to Barclays Premier League new boys Queens Park Rangers, just one year after moving to Merseyside.

According to talkSPORT, the 29-year-old is 'on the verge' of a season-long switch to Loftus Road, which will be completed if he can agree personal terms.

Cole was signed last summer by then Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson, and rejected the advances of Tottenham to secure a move to Anfield on a free transfer.

However, things failed to follow the script for Cole during his first few outings for Liverpool, with the former Chelsea man sent off against Arsenal on his league debut, before missing a penalty in the Europa League just four days later.


Injuries further hampered Cole's progress at Anfield, with the England international restricted to just nine league starts for Liverpool last season.

A new season will have given Cole fresh hope of claiming a regular starting berth, but the summer signings of Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson will have dented his ambitions.

With that in mind, a loan move to QPR could be the best resolution for all parties.
