Joe Cole Set for Anfield return
The chances of Joe Cole remaining at Lille for another season are slim according to their president Michel Seydoux.The England international has enjoyed a successful season in France after joining Lille on loan last summer and he has already expressed his interest in possibly staying there for a further year.His wages appear to be the stumbling block though as he is said to be earning £90,000 a week of which Lille pay a percentage, Lille are third in Ligue 1 with five games remaining, if they qualify for the Champions League then the chance of him staying increases, otherwise it could be back to Anfield for Cole.Seydoux said: "It's rare that an England international comes to France and that he then publicly declares he wants to stay."We will see. I haven't found a machine yet that lets you make beautiful bank notes by pedalling."It's true that the league table will have a bearing on Lille's recruitment."
