Roberto Di Matteo is "very optimistic" Ashley Cole will sign a new contract at Chelsea before the the transfer window opens after the left-back's first goal for 28 months kept them top of the Barclays Premier League.

Blues boss Di Matteo has no fears the man he hailed as a Stamford Bridge "legend" would reach January in a position to be able to pen a pre-contract agreement with a rival club.

"I'm very optimistic that it will be dealt with before that," Di Matteo said after watching Cole net a vital late winner in the European champions' 1-0 victory over Stoke.
