Warnock would love to have Roma's Cole at Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock admits he would 'love' to have AS Roma defender Ashley Cole at his club.

Rumours have been swirling about the former Arsenal and Chelsea left-back joining the Eagles on loan in January and although it is a highly unlikely scenario, Warnock believes he would be a great addition at Selhurst Park.

"I'd definitely have him [Cole]," Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.

"Absolutely, I'd have him tomorrow if I could. I don't think it will happen - but I would have him, I think he is super."

33-year old former England international Cole had a loan spell with Palace in 1999/2000 while he was with Arsenal but a return to south London is not on the cards after his agent David Mannaseh stated his client was happy in Italy and only focusing on his career with Roma.
