Ashley Cole's Roma contract officially terminated by mutual consent

Ashley Cole's contract with Roma has been terminated by mutual consent, the Serie A club announced on Tuesday.

The move clears the way for Cole to complete a long-reported move to the LA Galaxy, and the BBC reported that the defender had agreed terms with the MLS side.

The Los Angeles Times reported on Saturday, and ESPN FC sources confirmed, that Cole had been bought out of his Roma contract after making just 16 appearances since joining the club in the summer of 2014.

Cole had been frozen out at Roma after refusing to cancel his contract at the beginning of the current season.

"The club would like to thank Cole for his commitment during his stay in Rome and wish him the very best for his future career," Roma said in a statement on their official website.

Ashley Cole never caught on at Roma in his 18 months in Italy.

The 35-year-old has previously been regarded as a model of consistency at both club and international level. He spent eight seasons with Arsenal, winning two Premier League titles, three FA Cups and two Community Shields.

He then moved to Chelsea where he won one more league title, four more FA Cups and a League Cup. He also won a Champions League medal and a Europa League title during his time with the Blues.

Cole made a total of 107 international appearances with England and played in three World Cups.
