Carlton Cole has seen his stay in American soccer cut short, after failing to score any goals at all in is four games with USL championship side Sacramento Republic.
The former England international, 33, left Celtic last summer and headed State side in an attempt to win resurrect his career and perhaps make a name for himself alongside the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in the MLS.
But his minutes on the pitch for Republic – who are a club just four-years-old – totalled just 101 and he’s now heading back to the UK to try and find a club closer to home, according to American newspaper Sacramento Bee.
His spell in Sacramento closely resembles his time in Glasgow under previous Hoops boss Ronny Deila, where he was brought in to add some heft and power to Celtic’s attack.
But, sadly for Cole, he managed just one goal for the club in a Scottish Cup tie at Stranraer, and none at all in his four Scottish Premiership appearances.
Where could he end up next? West Ham are struggling for a striker…
