Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is expected to sign for Italian club Roma on Monday, his agent has confirmed.
The Serie A club tweeted a welcome message (external) alongside a photo of the 33-year-old arriving in the Italian capital.
Cole’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, said: “Ashley is out there and we are hoping it will be finalised today.”
The left-back is a free agent after Chelsea did not offer him a new contract at the end of the season. Roma published a picture of Cole with the message: “Welcome to Rome, Ashley.”
