Digging Cole


Filed: Monday, 16th June 2008

Rumours linking United's Carlton Cole with a move to Sunderland continue to abound.

Last month The Daily Mirror reported that Roy Keane was set to launch a bid for Cole having lost his main striker Kenwyn Jones to injury.

Now that link has resurfaced with The Shields Gazette claiming that Keane is ready to make an offer for the former Chelsea man, who played a pivotal role in West Ham's season last year.

Surrey-born Cole joined the Hammers from Chelsea two years ago this month for a fee in the region of 2 million.

Despite scoring within 30 seconds of his debut he went on to score just twice more last season. This season he has scored six goals from 37 appearances.

Current manager Alan Curbishley will be looking to recoup at least the same amount his predecessor Alan Pardew paid Chelsea in order to part company with the 6'3" forward.
