Ashley Cole wants new Chelsea deal

Ashley Cole has confirmed he is eager to sign a new contract at Chelsea.

Cole, who turns 33 in December, had been expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of last season, but in January he penned a new deal that ties him to the club until the end of the 2013-14 campaign, and the England left-back would relish the chance to spend a further year with the club.

“I signed an extension at the start of the year and so have this year left and it will be up at the end of the season,” he told the London Evening Standard. “I hope to stay for longer. I have had a great time here, a great career here and, of course, I’d love to stay if they still want me.

“There is going to be a time when they will have to replace me. I have Ryan [Bertrand] in my place and one day I’m going to want to watch him play, so the time will come when I do finish my career.”

Cole is relishing the reunion with Jose Mourinho, who signed him from Arsenal during the manager’s initial spell with the Blues.

“From the day he came, he said he’s not come here to make friends -- he’s come here to win and that’s what players want to hear,” he said. “We always want to win things, to be successful as a team and, hopefully, we can do that under Jose.

“I don’t think he’s different [to how he was before]. He’s always been the same. He’s come back to the club where he did a fantastic job winning two titles.

“He always demands 100 percent whether it’s in a game or in training. He always wants the best, he always wants your best. He’s a fighter and a winner and he wants to go into every game and win, just like us players.”
