Winger Wright-Phillips, 25, said: "Joe Cole is an idol for everybody and I am a believer that you can learn from every player you work with.

"We enjoy each other's company and there is a tight bond there."

Wright-Phillips is looking forward to battling with former England skipper David Beckham to play on the right side of midfield.

He said: "Becks is a quality player and has been an important part of the England team for a long time. He has always done well.

"I have to keep working hard and playing well."
