West Ham return unlikely for Liverpool's Cole

West Ham United won't be moving for Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole.

The London Evening Standard says West Ham are unlikely to offer their former player Cole a Premier League lifeline before the transfer window closes on Friday.

There has been speculation that Liverpool will off-load Cole and that West Ham are prepared to take the 30-year-old midfielder on loan for the rest of the season.

But West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has said that last week's £10.75million club record signing of Matt Jarvis from Wolves was likely to be his last for the time being and that was supported by a club source today who said: "We have no more business planned. There will be no one coming in unless someone goes out which is unlikely but possible."
