Cole happy at West Ham

Carlton Cole says he's happy at West Ham United.

"I'm settled at the club and I want to stay," he told Sky Sports News. "This is the first time I've actually stayed at a club and done two pre-seasons with them, because normally I'm off in the second pre-season.

"I'm just happy that I'm doing well now and hopefully I can stay and do better things for the club."

Cole played for Alan Curbishley at Charlton in 2003/4 and he is delighted to have been reunited with him at Upton Park.

But he has only made six appearances this season, four as a substitute, and has yet to score.

"I'm happy that I'm working under Curbishley and I hope I can do well for him," said Cole. "Every striker goes through times when they can't score but hopefully I'll get that one goal and then the floodgates will open."
