Hammers striker desperate to stay at Upton Park.
West Ham striker Cartlon Cole has revealed that he is desperate to stay at the club according to talkSport.
Cole expressed his desire for Hammers boss Sam Allardyce to give him another chance to stake his claim for a new contract.
The striker believes he is good enough to continuing do a job for West Ham despite finding him first team opportunities limited this season.
Cole’s contract is due to expire at the end of the current campaign and he is on course to leave West Ham after seven years at the club.
The player has slipped down the Upton Park pecking order this season following the arrival of Andy Carroll on a season long loan deal from Liverpool.
The Hammers have been linked with a number of strikers in recent weeks, including the permanent signing of Carroll as well as Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony.
The club’s desire for attacking reinforcements mean Cole is unlikely to find his chances of first team action improving next season.
Cole recently started for the club during their 0-0 draw with Liverpool and despite failing to score a goal, Cole believes he did enough to keep his place in the starting eleven.
