Carlton Cole's agent claims the former West Ham striker, now available on a free transfer, has been made offers by Premier League clubs. Cole's representative, Saif Rubie, claims there is interest in his client from the Premier League, Europe and the MLS.

"There are offers for Carlton from the Premier League, but also interest from Europe and big interest from MLS," Rubie told Sky Sports.

"At this stage we are looking at the pros and cons of each offer professionally and financially as this is a very important next step in Carlton's career and the move has to be right for him.

"We hope we can make a decision on Carlton's future soon."
