Bradford City

On 28 August 2015 Cole signed for Bradford City on a two-year deal, with the option of a third year, after being released by Manchester City. Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson praised Cole's pace. Before signing for them, he had been on trial with West Ham United and had been linked with a transfer to both Birmingham City and Preston North End. Manchester City have retained a sell-on clause from the deal, believed to be 30%. Cole made his debut a day later, appearing as a substitute. He scored on his debut in the 4th minute of injury time to earn City a 1–0 victory. Cole's potential development was praised by City manager Phil Parkinson. New striker partner James Hanson also discussed their teamwork, and the improvement in Cole's all-round game was praised by manager Phil Parkinson in October 2015.

Fleetwood Town

Cole signed for Fleetwood Town on 22 January 2016 for an undisclosed fee. He said he felt the new club suited him better than Bradford had done.

International career

Cole has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18, and under-19 levels.

Cole made his debut for the England under-19 team on 5 March 2014 in a friendly match against Turkey, starting the game and scoring the opening goal. On 29 May 2014, he made a further appearance from the start in a European Championship elite qualification match against Ukraine, which England lost to a deflected 94th-minute strike that eliminated them from the final tournament.
