It`s decision time!

The tabloid press have confirmed that Carlton Cole`s short-term contract has now finished and West Ham United are now having to decide whether to award the 30 year-old, who netted 4 times in 10 appearances another contract.

Matters are complicated by the fact that Andy Carroll is now back on the scene and there are, reportedly, moves afoot to bring the AS Monaco forward Lacina Traore to Upton Park.

The waters are further muddied by the fact that with Cole now a free agent Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers are both expressing an interest on acquiring his services.

One solution being bandied about is that Sam Allardyce may well decide to offer Carlton a new contract and release Mobido Maiga in this transfer window.

We can but wait and see!
