Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole is full of praise for understudy Ryan Bertrand.

Cole believes Bertrand can be an England regular.

"He has been one of our best players so far this season every time he has played and I hope in a few years he will be in the Chelsea first team and hopefully earning a place in the England team on a regular basis," Cole said of Bertrand in a club Q&A.

"Being here he has learned a lot and is playing with better players than when he was on loan, so we should expect him to be in and around the team and doing well."
