Sunderland fans have responded via HITC Sport and social networking site Twitter to speculation that Carlton Cole is a transfer target.
The Scottish Sun has claimed that newly-appointed Black Cats’ manager Sam Allardyce has the Englishman in his transfer thoughts.
It has also been reported that Cole is getting frustrated “with the prolonged negotiations” with Celtic, and that he is considering other options within the UK and abroad.
The 31-year-old has been training with Scottish Premiership giants Celtic for the past two weeks or so with a view to signing a contract.
Cole is a free agent at the moment, having left Premier League side West Ham at the end of last season.
Following the report about Cole, Sunderland fans took to Twitter to have their say and also commented on HITC Sport.
Below are some of the best comments:
Ian Baillie: “We need to get rid of dead wood not add to it, no more than an addition to squad numbers by signing Cole.”
Carlton Cole until the end of the season, lads? #SAFC— David Preece (@davidpreece12) October 10, 2015
Honestly think we have better or at least on par players to the likes of Nolan and Cole, plus they are just past there time! #SAFC— Aaron Tye (@aarontye95) October 9, 2015
Already linked to Carlton Cole... Is it wrong that I'm looking forward to be an absolute abomination of a team? #SAFC— Michael Potts (@potts93) October 9, 2015
Tomorrow we're gonna sign Carlton Cole and Kevin Nolan I know it. #safc— D (@ActuallyDGL) October 9, 2015
