BetVictor, UK bookmaker, gives Queens Park Rangers odds at 3/1 that it will manage to get football player Joe Cole on a free transfer.
Cole is an ex-star of Chelsea and parted with his last team West Ham United at the end of this season. He didn’t manage to win a starting place for himself due to several injuries, therefore he started only 6 games last season. Naturally afterwards, online sportsbooks in the UK started to bet, which will be his potential new club.
Cole commented for talkSPORT that he is willing to find the “right connection” at his new club: “I want to move back into a more central position and I want to go to the club where I have a good connection with the manager.”
Moreover: “My relationship with West Ham is great, but obviously it didn’t work towards the end of the season, I didn’t play enough. I’m just going to take my time over the summer and find the right fit. At this stage finances are not important to me.”
BetVictor, bookie that follows all UK gambling laws, gives Queens Park Rangers odds at 3/1 that they will be Cole’s choice, but this is not the only team in the race for his signature.
Brighton and Bournemouth are the other two teams, which are given odds at 6/1, and there is also the opportunity for him to move further, so “any MLS Club” gets 5/1 to land him.
