Birmingham City in talks with Cole
Birmingham City Football Club have reportedly opened talks over the transfer of Carlton Cole.
The 26-year-old striker had an impressive season at West Ham United despite his injury problems, scoring ten goals to make a key contribution in keeping the Londoners in the Premier League.
Cole, though, has been overlooked by England for the World Cup Finals, and the Hammers are prepared to listen to offers for his signature during the summer window.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have been in touch with the Upton Park club over the possibility of signing the former Chelsea man, who is rated at around £10million.
