Petr Cech has told Chelsea’s official website that he believes the Blues’ decision to retain the services of Ashley Cole is a good move, writes ESPN.

It had been widely expected that Cole would leave Stamford Bridge as the club refused to yield to his request for a two-year contract. The likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League rivals Manchester United were all linked with moves for the player, but the former Arsenal defender has now committed his immediate future to Chelsea.


The 32-year-old left back ended speculation regarding his future by signing a new one-year contract at Stamford Bridge, and goalkeeper Cech hailed the news. Cech believes that the retention of such veteran players will pay dividends in the future as present young players seek to gain more experience.


The 30-year-old stopper said: “Ashley's new deal is great news. He is still one of the best full-backs in the world and we want players like that to stay at the club as it shows we still have the ambition and motivation to challenge for everything, it's great to see.


We still have a very young side. The players gain more experience every day, but we have players who like to play and sometimes you need to shut the door and see the game out. The nature of the players we have is to keep on playing, but the important thing is to improve.


Cole will now spend the 2013/14 season at Stamford Bridge, though his future beyond then at this time remains unclear.
