Tinkerman could make Carlton his first signing

coleLeicester City boss Claudio Ranieri could make former Hammer Carlton Cole his first signing.

According to the Daily Mirror, The Tinkerman is weighing up a move for Cole who is a free agent as he knows him from his time as Chelsea manager.

Ranieri gave Cole his debut as a teenager in 2002 and described him as the best young player he had ever worked with at the time. He has always kept a good relationship with Cole after once labelling him “Tyson” for his size and strength.

It is claimed Cole has also attracted interest from West Brom, Aston Villa and Norwich.

  1. Hope he gets a 3 year contract,just hope he has a mare when he plays against us,
    Good luck Calton

  2. Good luck to Carlton but in all honesty Leicester will need more luck, with him in his present state unless they have found the elixir of youth..

  3. Yep good luck Carlton but like bubs says remember the club you love when you play us

  4. Will be pleased to see him get a final payday(not that players really need them these days),especially after he had the plug pulled on his WBA move because fatty said he needed him.Only to then barely play him anyway!
