Carlton Cole fails medical ahead of West Ham return
Former Hammers striker Carlton Cole has failed to seal an imminent return to West Ham United due to failure to pass a medical test.
The 29-year-old English forward was inching closer to the signing of a short-term deal with the London outfit, who released him from his contract at the conclusion of last season.
The Hammers manager Sam Allardyce had stated earlier this week that Carlton Cole would have a medical ahead of his switch to the club, but it is understood that Cole failed to pass the medical fitness test, as per London 24.
Cole spent the last seven years with the Premier League outfit before his release.
