Carlton Cole set for West Ham return

West Ham are set to sign Carlton Cole on a short-term deal just months after the striker was released by the club.

Thorne: Don't Panic!

Cole left Upton Park as a free agent at the end of last season after his contract expired and was not offered a new deal.

But, after the Hammers failed to bolster their forward line during the summer transfer window, they are ready to welcome Cole, 29, back into the fold and see him feature for them for an eighth straight season.

"Despite the board and manager deciding to do their business early on in the window to avoid last-minute panic buys - resulting in the successful signings of Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Razvan Rat and Adrian - joint-chairman David Sullivan and manager Sam Allardyce did spend all night on Monday trying to sign one of three international strikers, but all opted for the lure of European football instead," West Ham said in a statement outlining their summer transfer business.

"Importantly, the board also turned down bids for several first-team players in the last week of the window as they are determined to give the squad the best chance possible of bettering last season's tenth-placed Premier League finish.

"The club are pleased to announce that popular striker Carlton Cole is also undergoing a medical today with a view to returning to the Boleyn Ground on a short-term deal."
