West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole is being linked with a lucrative move to MLS.

The Sunday Mirror says Cole is out of contract in May and it is believed he will not be offered a new deal if Sam Allardyce remains in charge at Upton Park.

Cole, 32, is one of several Premier League players who is of interest to MLS Commissioner Don Garber - and he is already free to negotiate with foreign clubs.

He knows he would earn more by moving to the States as one of the three 'designated players' allowed at each club, exceeding the League's salary cap.
