Lee Cook: The experienced winger is looking at a number of options before choosing a club for next season
Lee Cook is playing a waiting game as he hopes to land himself a lucrative contract with a Championship team this season.
The 29-year-old is a free agent after his contract at Premier League side QPR ran out this summer and he was released by the west London club he supported as a boy.
The winger was loaned out to a number of League One clubs last season including Charlton where he helped them secure promotion and would consider another spell in the third tier.
Cook revealed he has had a number of offers from other League One sides already, but says he is going to take his time to weigh up his options before committing.
"I have had offers from League One clubs," said Cook. "But I am just waiting for a Championship club to show some interest and make a move.
"At the moment that has not happened and I am surprised by that, but I have spoken to a number of other players who are in the same boat.
"I felt that going out on loan last season and being able to get those games under my belt I might have had an offer from somewhere.
"However if that does not happen then I will look to League One and focus on staying there for just a single season before earning the right to play in the Championship again."
