Ashley Cole wants new Chelsea contract

Published Add your comment

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has admitted he is keen on extending his stay at Stamford Bridge, reports the London Evening Standard.

The 32-year-old defender signed a new deal one-year deal in January that will keep him at the west London side until the end of the season.

However Cole has revealed he is already desperate to sign a new contract at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho's side, like Premier League rivals Manchester United, only offer one-year deals to players over 30 after the player's fitness has been assessed.

England left-back Cole is likely to be offered a new contract as he remains a vital part of Chelsea's team and has only missed one Premier League game so far this season.

Cole, speaking to reporters, said on his future: “I signed an extension at the start of the year and so have this year left and it will be up at the end of the season.

"I hope to stay for longer. I have had a great time here, a great career here and, of course, I’d love to stay if they still want me.

“There is going to be a time when they will have to replace me. I have Ryan [Bertrand] in my place and one day I’m going to want to watch him play, so the time will come when I do finish my career.”

Cole will be rested for tonight's Capital One Cup clash between Chelsea and former side Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, with Ryan Bertrand likely to make his third competitive start of the season.
