QPR want permanent option for Liverpool's Cole

An outright move to QPR cannot be ruled out for Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole.

An outright move to QPR cannot be ruled out for Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole.

The Daily Mail says QPR have opened talks with Liverpool — who beat them 3-0 — over a January switch for the midfielder, 31, who was given his professional debut by Redknapp at West Ham in 1998.

Harry Redknapp is hoping to seal a loan deal ahead of a permanent move if Rangers avoid relegation.

But if Cole and Liverpool agree a severance package for the 18 months left on his £90,000-per-week deal, he could join permanently next month.
