New York Red Bulls clear decks for Chelsea star Cole

New York Red Bulls have cleared the decks to sign Chelsea star fullback Ashley Cole. The MLS giants last week cut two fullbacks from their roster to make room for the England international left-back.

The People says they want to link Cole up with his former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry in the January window before the new MLS season starts in early March.

LA Galaxy are also keen to sign Cole, who has won 106 England caps but is now facing the prospect of being frozen out of Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad.

Cole, who turns 33 this month, is out of ­contract at the Stamford Bridge club in the summer and is unlikely to be offered a new deal.

Cole earns a basic salary of around £60,000 a week at Chelsea - with large appearance bonuses included in his current one-year deal, which as things stand he is not benefitting from.
