West Ham striker Andy Carroll had an hilarious response when asked what he would get team-mate Carl Jenkinson for Christmas.

Carroll joked that he would get right-back Jenkinson, on loan from Arsenal for the season, "some banter if I could, because he has absolutely zero. He is the weirdest man ever."

Carlton Cole, meanwhile, said he would get striker Senegalese striker Diafra Sakho, who joined the club from Ligue 1 side Metz in the summer, some new clobber.


"I'd have to buy him some gear. His footwear is atrocious. I don't it," Cole said. "He's got some plimsolls he wears and I don't understand it. I don't know if it's the in thing in France but he needs to get his footwear up to date."
