Cheryl Cole's friend Brian Friedman wants her to move to Los Angeles so he can find her a new boyfriend
Cheryl Cole's friends want to find her an American boyfriend.
Pals of the 'Parachutes' singer - who recently split from her soccer star husband Ashley Cole amid claims he had cheated on her with several women - are determined to help raise her spirits by not letting her stay single for long.
Choreographer Brian Friedman - who works with the Girls Aloud beauty on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' - told the News of the World newspaper: "She deserves a great guy. Hopefully she'll find him. I don't know Ashley well. I only see him every once in a while at the show, but Cheryl's my friend. So I have her back.
"When news came out about me moving her to LA, I've been getting non-stop contact from top guys in this city asking me to set them up with Cheryl.
"When - or actually if - she is ever ready to date someone, of course I will hook her up."
It has also been claimed that dancer Derek Hough - who was pictured leaving the star's hotel in the early hours of the morning when she fled to the US following her marriage split - is determined to win over Cheryl.
A source said: "He's not used to women saying no to him and plans to use all his charms to win her round."
Cheryl is said to be seriously considering a move to Los Angeles, where she can throw herself into work in order to get over her heartbreak.
Her friend Soulshock - real name Carsten Schack - revealed they chatted about the move when she appeared on Denmark's version of TV talent show 'The X Factor', on Friday (05.03.10).
Soulshock - who is a judge on the programme - told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I had a good chat to Cheryl for about an hour before the show.
"She didn't want to talk about Ashley. She was speaking about LA and how she really wanted to get back there and start working on new songs.
"Cheryl is using her work as a real focus at the moment. She's a very professional artist and there is nothing that will get in her way."
