Cole agrees new West Ham deal

Carlton Cole has put pen to paper on a new 18-month contract to stay at West Ham United, after his initial three month deal expired on Monday, writes Sky Sports.

The former England international striker was released by the club back in June, but injuries to key attacking players forced Hammers boss Sam Allardyce to bring Cole back on a short-term contract.

After gaining match fitness, Cole has scored four goals in 11 Premier League appearances upon his return, the most recent of them coming on Saturday as West Ham secured a priceless victory at Cardiff City to haul themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone.

His form has made West Ham keen to keep him at Upton Park, despite Andy Carroll’s recent return from a long-term foot injury, and they have rewarded his efforts with the new deal, which will also ward off competition from other clubs who may have been interested in signing the 30-year-old when he became a free agent.

Cole originally joined West Ham in 2006, and overall in his two spells he has made 251 appearances, scoring 63 goals.
