Carlton Cole was asked about his future at West Ham when he appeared on Sky’s Fantasy Football club on Thursday this week.
The loyal Hammer told John Fendley and Paul Merson “Depends what the owners want to do, the new manager or the present manager. I don’t know, we don’t know what is going on at the moment. As a footballer you always keep your options open”
Asked whether he has considered moving abroad Cole said
“I think if I was to go abroad it wouldn’t be too bad. It would be a new experience for me. I have been in the Premiership all my life basically and that’s all I know. Sometimes to go somewhere else is another new start which can give you a new lease of life to enjoy your football. Another club that are newly promoted (to the Premier league) or in the Championship, I would have a look at that too!”
“I am just waiting, the agents have their feelers out naturally but I have not even asked what is going on with me yet, I have just left it. I am in limbo with what’s going on with me until I know what the club want to do. They haven’t told me anything yet so I can’t really start searching”
