Cole rumour resurfaces

Joe Cole is once again being linked with a return to the Boleyn Ground.

The out-of-favour Liverpool midfielder, who left West Ham in 2003 having refused to sign a new contract is thought to have been made an offer to join United on loan for the forthcoming Championship season.

As unlikely a deal as it may seem, understands that enquiries have indeed been made by West Ham with regards to making the move a possibility.

However any move would hinge on Liverpool paying the majority of the former England international's £90,000 per week wages - assuming, of course, Cole would opt to play in the second division instead of choosing from a whole host of Premier League options, as would surely be revealed should it be known that he is available for loan.

West Ham announced today that they are delaying the season ticket holder deadline by a fortnight. It is thought that the club are keen to announce a marquee signing - or, cynics may suggest, be strongly linked with one - before that deadline is reached.
