Joe Cole says he would love to remain with Lille but admits the decision ultimately lies with Liverpool.

The former England midfielder is enjoying his time on loan with the French Ligue 1 club but knows that his future is dependent on what Liverpool want at the end of the season.

"I've not spoken to anyone at Liverpool," he said told the Liverpool Echo.

"I'm expecting a call from them. I would like to stay here, but it's still too early to say. Let's see how Lille finish the season.

"I am happy here, my family too.

"I was well received and I love this team. But it's not me who decides. We need to see what the board decides."
