West Ham United look certain to bid farewell to Upton Park favourite son Joe Cole in the summer.

Thirty-two-year old Cole has an indifferent record this season and SportsDirect News has learned exclusively he interests his first boss Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers.

The Loftus Road manager is heading back towards the Premier League with his team currently sitting in third place, five points behind leaders Leicester City.

Redknapp believes that Cole is a player whom can still make an impact at the highest level with the right handling but that he could prove a strong performer should the club find itself still at Championship level.

Cole himself will walk away as a free agent in the summer and word from inside the club is that he is likely to leave.

Redknapp is currently eyeing another Hammer - striker Carlton Cole - whose current contract at Upton Park runs out in mid January and is known to be interested in adding his namesake.

A source told us exclusively: "Joe hasn't had the number of opportunities he would have expected and is likely to move on."
