Cole willing to fight for Chelsea place and new contract

Ashley Cole is willing to remain at Chelsea and prove to manager Jose Mourinho that he deserves a new contract, the Daily Telegraph has reported, despite the England international failing to get back into the team after recovering from injury.

It had been suggested that Cole could leave Stamford Bridge when the January transfer window opened but the Telegraph claims the former Arsenal defender is not interested in leaving west London. Cole will have six months remaining on his contract as of the New Year, however, but he is willing to wait to open talks on an extension.


Chelsea have a policy of only offering one-year contracts to players over 30 and as yet there have been no discussions between the club and Cole’s representatives. Cole has not been part of Mourinho’s XI in recent weeks after a rib problem, with the left-back’s last appearance coming in the defeat to Newcastle last month.


Cesar Azpilicueta has been filling in at left-back in the absence of Cole, who was named as a substitute for Sunday’s win over Southampton. Cole is not expected to feature in the midweek game against Sunderland, but could start against Stoke on Saturday.


Like Cole, over-30s John Terry and Frank Lampard also out of contract at the end of the season but no decision on their futures will be taken in the coming weeks.


Cole has been a Chelsea player for almost eight years, crossing London when leaving the Gunners in 2006. William Gallas went in the opposite direction as part of the transfer, with Cole going on to make 325 appearances for the Blues, scoring seven goals.
