Cole retains Hammers focus

West Ham United frontman Carlton Cole says that he had no interest in jumping ship during the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old England international has only recently returned from a couple of months out due to a knee injury and says that his only priority is to help the Hammers move clear of relegation danger.

He told Sky Sports:"I wasn't in the least bit interested in entertaining offers, my only focus was and still is to do the best I can for West Ham for the rest of the season in the situation we are in.

"My only priority is to get back to full fitness and do my best on the pitch.

"There has been speculation about my future, however, I am not one to shirk my responsibility.

"I am looking forward to enjoying a good end to the season by producing some good performances to repay the Upton Park faithful."
