Joe Cole is set to win a new four-year Chelsea contract worth £90,000-a-week.

The People says the Chelsea midfielder will train with the first team for the first time in over six months next week which has Blues bigwigs looking to sort a new contract ASAP.

Cole, who suffered a cruciate ligament injury back in January, had another setback at the start of the summer which put talks on hold.

But now he is almost ready to start pushing for a place in the first team, boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to secure his future at the club with less than a year left on his contract.
