Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti admits he is determined to secure Joe Cole to a new deal.

Defender Alex signed a new four-year deal earlier this month while striker Salomon Kalou put pen to paper on a new three-year contract.

John Terry, Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba and Michael Mancienne have already signed extended deals to stay in London.

England midfielder Cole is out of contract at the end of the season and Ancelotti said: "We want to maintain the squad because that will ensure it stays very competitive. We need these players for the future. We may make one or two changes in the summer."
