Carlton Cole has offers from Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace after his short-term deal at West Ham United came to an end.

The striker netted in the Irons' 2-0 win against Cardiff on Saturday but no decision has been made as to whether the club will extend his stay at Upton Park.

Andy Carroll's return from injury has given Sam Allardyce a major boost but he may want to keep Cole at West Ham as they remain short on striking options.

However, a long-term offer from either Palace or Rangers may be a better deal for the 30-year-old.
