Chelsea defender Ashley Cole comments on recent transfer rumours linking English wonderkid to Stamford Bridge transfer.
Chelsea left back Ashley Cole is already eyeing up his replacement at Stamford Bridge, with Southampton starlet Luke Shaw the man most regularly linked in transfer rumours.
Cole has lost his place in the Blues starting XI, with Cesar Azpilicueta starting on the left side of defence in recent weeks, and has seen calls for him to lose his place in the England side as well – with Everton star Leighton Baines and Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs in great form.
Cole, who is now 33 years of age, struggled to sleep after Chelsea’s narrow 1-0 victory over Swansea City in the Barclays Premier League, and engaged with fans on Twitter in a Q&A session.
One fan put to him that Southampton left back Luke Shaw was likely to replace him sooner rather than later, and Cole was magnanimous about the potential event.
