West Ham United have rejected a bumper offer from Galatasaray for striker Carlton Cole.

The Daily Mail says West Ham have rejected Galatasaray's £4million bid for in-form striker Cole.

Turkey's transfer window does not close until Monday night and Cole was being urged to keep an open mind about playing abroad as Galatasaray considered an improved offer.

Sources close to the striker said that the 27-year-old would be reluctant to leave London after a promising start to the season, in which he has scored three goals in five League games under Sam Allardyce.
