Carlton Cole set for West Ham U-turn

Just months after his contract expired at the club, Carlton Cole looks set to rejoin West Ham on a free transfer.

West Ham were in the market for another striker, yet a move failed to materialise before the transfer window slammed close last night. Now it looks as though Sam Allardyce could look towards the player he released just two months ago.

Cole spent seven years at Upton Park and became somewhat of a fans favourite throughout his time in east London. Signing Cole could be a good move for the Hammers, who having missed out on other targets, have been left a little light up top. 

Cole will be moving back to very familiar surroundings and wouldn't take any time at all to settle back in. There would be no transfer fee necessary, as he is still a free agent since being released. All that would be left to do is for the club to agree personal terms with the striker. 

The seven-time capped England international didn't enjoy the best of seasons for West Ham last year, managing just two goals in the league. However, his physical presence could provide some much needed back up for the injury-prone Andy Carroll. 

Crystal Palace were believed to be interested in the striker, but Ian Holloway denied the club would be making a move for him earlier in the transfer window.
