Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole will turn down an offer from former club West Ham in favour of a summer switch to Tottenham according to the Daily Mirror.

The 29-year-old has also attracted interest from Barclays Premier League new boys QPR, but the west London club are yet to make a concrete offer for the want-away star.

Cole has endured a difficult time with the Reds since his free transfer move to Anfield last summer, and has been consistently overlooked by Kenny Dalglish after his return to Merseyside in January.

Liverpool have been busy in the transfer window, and have recruited a number of big-money midfielders which will likely further limit Cole's opportunities.


However, the former England international is not keen on dropping into the Npower Championship to join up with West Ham, after Sam Allardyce indicated he could make an ambitious attempt to bring him back to Upton Park before the close of the transfer window.

Cole is instead holding out for a move to White Hart Lane - which would see him link up with former Hammers boss Harry Redknapp, as Spurs continue to work tirelessly in their bid to improve their playing squad.

The renewed interest in a creative midfielder of Cole's ilk will do little to assure the Tottenham faithful that Luka Modric's future is anything but certain, as he could be lined up as a direct replacement for the Croatian playmaker.
