Former Hammers Bobby Zamora and Rio Ferdinand have been released by QPR this week following their relegation to the championship. Both have contracts which expire on 30th June. Mauro Zarate will also be rejoining West Ham after his season long loan with QPR which has come to an end after playing just 71 minutes.
If rumours are to be believed to be true then one former Hammer released by West Ham this week could soon be joining QPR in the other direction.
Carlton Cole has been linked with a move to West London to help them win promotion back to the Premier League. Chairman Tony Fernandes who claims to be a life long West Ham fan is a big admirer of the big man.
Once linked with a £20 million move to Liverpool and rejecting opportunities to sign for clubs including Galatasaray and Stoke the former Hammer is likely to receive a number of offers from Championship and MLS clubs following his release.
