Cole Apologises, Green Target for Schalke
The Metro say that Robert Green is certain to leave West Ham this summer. Although they seem to be basing this assumption on the claim that all the West Ham squad is up for sale.
The Metro say that German side Schalke are keen to sign Green as a replacement for Germany international Manuel Neuer.
Carlton Cole has publicly apologised to West Ham fans for the team's performance this year,
"The fans love the club so much and they don't deserve to go through what they've been through this year and for me personally, I'd like to apologise," said Cole.
"We haven't been good enough and hopefully next season we can put it right.
"I represent West Ham. The players and the manager will tell you, we're all sorry things haven't worked out the way they were supposed to this season. But we need to regroup and start again next season and hopefully we can. We are going to do better next season, that's the bottom line."
We all know that we haven't been good enough this season. Scott Parker's been brilliant, and he's my players' Player of the Year. Obviously he's the fans' favourite, so there's no way they're going to be looking to sell him.
"But as for the rest I don't know what's going on. Everyone knows we're in financial difficulties and if the right offer comes in for anybody, you can't really turn it down.
"That's football. I think at any club in the Premier League, if someone's offered a good amount for one of your players and you think it's worth it, you're going to take it."
