Celtic wrap up deal for ex-West Ham United striker Carlton Cole

Former West Ham United striker Carlton Cole joins Celtic on a contract until 2017.

Former West Ham United striker Carlton Cole has joined Celtic on a contract until 2017.

The 32-year-old was a free agent having left West Ham after nine years at the club earlier this summer.

He had been training with Celtic in recent weeks and now the Scottish champions have agreed a deal with the striker that runs until the end of next season.

Cole had also been linked with a move to Sunderland to join up with former manager Sam Allardyce.

Cole is not part of Celtic's Europa League squad, so cannot feature against Molde tonight, but he could make his debut on Sunday against Dundee United.
