Joe Cole expects West Ham exit

West Ham midfielder Joe Cole has said that he expects to leave the club at the end of the Premier League season, according to Sky Sports.


Joe Cole


The 32-year-old started his career with the Hammers and rejoined his old side in January 2013 from Liverpool, but his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.


After starting just six matches for West Ham this season, the former Chelsea star admits that he may have to look elsewhere for first-team football.


"If I could stay and play then that would be ideal but that doesn't look like I'm the manager's first choice.


"I'm being used here and there and sparingly. But at my age and where I am in my career I want to enjoy my football. I love competing and just I want to play.


"I'll be looking next year to play in a more central role. Being a winger in the past 10-11-12 years you lose a bit of patience, you want to come inside.


"Playing central will be something I will be looking for in my next club or if I stay at West Ham.”


Cole’s career took off when leaving West Ham for Chelsea in which time he won several trophies and was even called up for international duty regularly.


Despite being unable to make an impact on his return to the club he began his career with, Cole believes that he has lived up to his potential over the course of his playing days.


"It's perception in football and there was a lot of pressure put on me as a youngster but I think I've achieved what I'm capable of achieving," he said.


"A lot of it in football is people's perception of what you could have done, what you should have done.


"I still want more. The fire still burns. I still want to play and play at the highest level I can play.”
