BEC Tero confirm interest in S.League forwards, Joe Cole

DPMM's prolific RodrigoTosi and Roy O'Donovan are being courted by the Thai club along with the former England man
Thai Premier League (TPL) club BEC Tero Sasana have officially confirmed their interest in Brunei DPMM duo Rodrigo Tosi and Roy O'Donovan as well as free agent Joe Cole.

Goal had reported on Friday that the TPL leaders were looking at prying the freescoring S.League duo as well as former England international Cole.

Speaking to Goal Thailand BEC TERO General Manager Robert Procureur reiterated the interest in Tosi and O'Donovan who are lead the scoring chart in the S.League with 23 goals between them. He also added that Cole's wage demands were expectedly high and it would not be a stumbling block.

"Yes, we're ready to negotiate with the three of them," said Procureur. "And we're well aware that Joe Cole's cost will be incredibly expensive."

Cole has reportedly been courted by several Major League Soccer (MLS) sides since parting ways with West Ham at the end of last season.

Journeyman Tosi meanwhile has proven to be DPMM's most consistent player and with 12 goals is the top scorer in the S.League, just one ahead of his team-mate O'Donovan who has 11 strikes from 12 games.

The duo will be in action for DPMM next on May 22 in a highly anticipated, top of the table showdown with Warriors FC at Choa Chu Kang Stadium.
