Roma confirm signing of former Chelsea & Arsenal left back Ashley Cole

This could well go down as one of the most exciting transfers of the summer.

Seeing Ashley Cole and Maicon raiding down the wings for Roma, would have been a dream about five years ago, but now looks to be a fairly exciting reality despite their advancing years.

Cole joined Roma having left Chelsea after failing to agree a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

Roma confirmed that Cole has agreed a two-year-deal with an option to extend into a third.

The former England left back will be keen to test himself in Serie A and will of course bring plenty of experience to their Champions League campaign.

Cole becomes the first Englishman to sign for Roma.

Good luck Ashley!
