Stoke agree fee with West Ham for Carlton Cole

13th July 2011 - Berko Tau

Stoke City have agreed a fee with West Ham United ahead of a potential move that could see the English striker play football games for the Potters.

Cole and his agent are now in negotiations over the proposed transfer, with the fee believed to be an initial £4 million with add-ons of £2 million, reports the BBC.

Stoke chairman Peter Coates told BBC Radio Stoke: "We've agreed terms with them [West Ham], it's now just seeing where we get with the player and agent, and that's still a live issue."

Mr Coates also asserted that he is no doubt that Cole wants to come to Stoke, though the two sides are now in the "messy business" of trying to reach an agreement.

One player who has already sealed his move to Stoke City is Jonathan Woodgate, with the former Leeds defender signing a one-year contract.
