Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole is hoping that he can resurrect his career by joining up with former boss Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers in January.

The Mirror has reported that Cole is keen to leave Liverpool during the January transfer window and is open to once again moving in a loan deal after having a successful spell with Lille during his season-long loan in France.

Cole has struggled to make an impact at Anfield since his move from Chelsea and has found his first team opportunities limited under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

The 31-year-old has made just three substitute appearances in the Premier League and has found it near impossible to force his way into the plans of Rodgers who has publically criticised the midfielder for his poor displays.

It is believed that contact has already been made by QPR as Redknapp attempts to bring some new players to the club and save them from relegation.

Redknapp previously worked with Cole at West Ham and was the manager that first gave the midfielder his chance in the first team after he graduated from the Hammers academy.

It seems that Redknapp still believes that Cole can perform in the Premier League and that he could make a difference to a side which is currently bottom of the league and without a single win all season.

QPR may well be short of funds having signed more than a dozen players in the summer and a loan deal may end up being the best solution for the struggling London club.

A return to London may also be favourable for Cole who spent the vast majority of his career in his hometown as he became an England regular while becoming an integral member of the Chelsea first team.

Liverpool have also shown that they are willing to send their unwanted players on-loan, with out of favour striker Andy Carroll currently on a season-long loan at West Ham.
