Joe Cole is delighted to be involved in training at Chelsea.

"I like being back, it's great when you come back and get involved. Everyone is fresh and you can see the lads bouncing round and it's good to welcome the new players in," he told the club's website.

"We've made two good young signings in Sturridge and Turnbull, and Zhirkov who has given us all sorts of problems, we know what he can do but it's great to see some English players. Not just on the pitch but off the pitch, they are so important for us this year."
