Reports are claiming that Joe Cole may commute from London rather than move to France after his loan signing to Lille.
The midfielder agreed to the season-long loan rather than move to Villa Park on the same terms, after Alex McCleish’s team showed late interest.
Cole accepted a move away from Anfield as it seems he will not figure much into a strengthened Liverpool squad under Kenny Dalglish, playing only 20 games last season, many of those from the bench.
It’s thought that the Ligue 1 champions have agreed to let their new signing commute from London, as it would take only 90 minutes to get to France via Eurostar.
Long commutes are not uncommon i the modern game, and many top flight footballers suffer longer trips to play for their clubs.
