Carlton Cole has rejoined West Ham United on a three-month contract, having previously left Upton Park at the end of last season. The 30-year-old is expected to feature in the squad to play Manchester City on Saturday with striker Andy Carroll still overcoming injury.

Cole played a friendly against Charlton last week to prove his fitness to manager Sam Allardyce and an agreement has now been reached that suits both parties.
