Carlton Cole, who was recently dumped by an Indonesian club after being blamed by the manager for their “bad” performances, says he’s heard nothing about a rumoured move to Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace.
Speaking to Sunday Supplement, the 33-year-old admitted he is keen to get back into football with an English club.
“I’ve not heard anything. You never know what happens in football,” he said. “Clubs need strikers to take the pressure off. Obviously I’m here and ready to go.
“I don’t know what’s going on to be honest. I’m just waiting for a phone call to see if a team is ready for me to go there and see where that takes me.
“Playing up front in the Premier League is hard but I obviously think I’ve got what it takes and I know what it takes. It’s all rumours at the moment so we’ll keep it like that.
“I want to stay in England. I don’t want to go abroad anymore, I’ve done that. Anything close to home would be good for me.”
