Aston Villa have confirmed that they are interested in the signing of former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole, who appears to be free to leave Italian outfit Roma. Cole secured a high-profile move to Roma after deciding to leave Chelsea.
He was originally expected to join the MLS in order to enjoy some few years before retirement. The move to Roma, though, has not helped his career since he has been spending most of the time on the bench. Even though he is 35 years old,Cole does seem to think that he has time left at the top level.
