Cole describes the youngster as a "proper player".
"He's very much part of our team and he's a quick learner," said Cole. "I judge people how I find them and he's a top bloke. He's got a big future ahead of him. He's got everything it takes, including attitude. He's a proper player now.
"He's been outstanding. It's not premature to think he could play for England, look at Ross Barkley, Andros Townsend and Jack (Wilshere). I was 19 or 20 when I first played for England. Ravel must have a chance because Roy (Hodgson) has said he will go for youth over experience if it's a close call."
