West Ham boss Grant: Liverpool tried for Carlton Cole

West Ham United boss Avram Grant admits Liverpool tried to sign Carlton Cole yesterday.

The Hammers squad looks much the same as it did at the start of the day but there was plenty of talk regarding potential additions and outgoings.

Liverpool were linked with a £9million bid for Cole, with Ryan Babel reportedly offered in return.

Grant told Sky Sports News: "I think Liverpool were interested (in Cole) at the last moment, they tried to do something. I don't think it was an offer.

"(Babel) was one of the suggestions to do or not to do."
