Once a Blue, always a Blue - at least it is if you are Ashley Cole, who has revealed his intention to see out his playing days at Stamford Bridge, after targeting further Chelsea success, starting from next season.
The 31-year-old defender is widely regarded as one of the finest left-backs in the world, and as such has commanded interest from a number of clubs across Europe.
But Cole is adamant he will be in west London for as long as he is wanted, as he bids to add to his already impressive medal collection.
"It was disappointing last season [not to win a trophy] although we came close only to fall at crucial stages," he reflected. "But we hope to win something in the new season.
"There are still many more years of football in me and I want to be part of Chelsea as this is the club that can pose a threat to all the big names in the game at all levels. I want to end my playing career with Chelsea."
Under the stewardship of new manager Andre Villas-Boas, Cole reserved special praise for the Portuguese coach, who he has backed to bring the success that Chelsea so desperately crave, back to Stamford Bridge.
"We have a young manager who is somewhat on the same wavelength with the players," Cole continued. "This is wonderful to the team.
"When we train and if we are tired the manager will stop the training and move on to other things to add spice to our training sessions. This has been good and we have come on fine so far."
