Rodgers backs Cole's West Ham move

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Joe Cole is on the brink of an emotional return to his first club West Ham.

Rodgers said a return to Upton Park would be a 'terrific move' for the 31-year-old, who has failed to make his mark since joining Liverpool from Chelsea in the summer of 2010.

"I spoke to Joe a couple of times earlier and he was talking with West Ham," Rodgers said. "He is a really good lad and has been brilliant during my time here. Hopefully they can get it sorted out."

Cole would receive a hero's welcome if he was to finish his career in West Ham colours, with the Upton Park faithful never losing their respect for the player who emerged through their ranks in a blaze of glory back in 1998.

Not even his move to London rivals Chelsea could dilute the affection Hammers fans have for Cole, with the England international receiving a warm welcome on his return to the Boleyn Ground since his departure.

His move to West Ham will scupper Harry Redknapp's hopes of bringing Cole to QPR and the Rangers boss has admitted his disappointment at failing to sign the midfielder.

"I lost a player who I tried to sign today," Redknapp said. "I like Joe. I had been talking [to try and get the transfer done] today, the last two weeks really.

"I thought he was coming for sure, then West Ham came in. He's West Ham, I understand. He's going back home. I wish him all the best."

It is understood Cole had a medical at Upton Park on Wednesday night, with the transfer likely to be confirmed on Thursday.
