WEST Ham striker Carlton Cole insists he is happy to stay at Upton Park to help the Hammers in their survival campaign.

The former Chelsea man was linked with big money moves to Liverpool and Arsenal during the January transfer window but the 26-year-old said his head was not turned by their interest.

“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,” Cole told skysports.com.

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