Ashley Cole talking to 'several clubs'
Former Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole is in talks with several clubs, all of which are based abroad, his agent has confirmed.
The 33-year-old left-back is a free agent following his release by Chelsea this summer and has been linked with various sides, including Liverpool, Real Madrid, Monaco and a number of MLS clubs.
Reports have suggested a move to Italian club Roma could be close.
And on Sunday, Cole's agent Jonathan Barnett told Press Association Sport: "The situation is that we are talking to several clubs.
"At the moment it is only clubs based abroad -- there may be other developments, but for the moment, that is all we are talking."
Barnett declined to discuss a potential timescale in terms of any deal being completed.
Cole spent eight seasons with Chelsea, during which he won the Champions League, Europa League, Premier League and four FA Cups.
He has 107 England caps and announced his retirement from international football in May when he was left out of Roy Hodgson's squad for the 2014 World Cup.
