Cole priority is new Chelsea deal

Ashley Cole's priority is to win a new deal with Chelsea.

The Telegraph says Cole has no plans to leave Stamford Bridge next month and is ready to return to the first team after recovering from his rib injury.

The England international's contract runs out at the end of the season but he is relaxed about his future and open to the prospect of talks over an extension early next year.

Chelsea have a strict policy of offering only 12-month contracts to players over 30 and there have been no negotiations with Cole's representatives yet, with the 32-year-old's future appearing uncertain after he was left out of the team by manager Jose Mourinho.
