Released West Ham United striker Carlton Cole is ready to leave England.

The Daily Mail says Cole has opened talks with Turkish side Kasimpasa after their league rivals Karabukspor failed to agree terms with the 29-year-old.

The former West Ham man is wanted by a number of clubs in England following his release from Upton Park at the end of last season.

Crystal Palace were considering a deal, as was Steve Bruce at Hull City and Harry Redknapp at QPR.
