coleFormer Hammer Carlton Cole has signed for the Indonesian team Persib Bandung.

He underwent a medical in Bandung on Wednesday and was officially presented by the club on Thursday morning.

Cole told the club’s official website: ‘I never knew my career would bring me to Indonesia, (but) this is a great club. I want to pay for the support of the fans by scoring a lot of goals.
