Ashley Cole mobbed at airport ahead of Roma move

Published 07/07/2014 | 14:00

Roma fans have flocked to the airport to greet the arrival of former England left-back Ashley Cole ahead of his move to the Serie A giants.

Cole is expected to complete a free transfer later today following his release by Chelsea. The Giallorossi have offered the 33 year-old a two-year deal believed to be £150,000-a-week  in order to convince him to move to the Stadio Olimpico.

Upon his arrival, Roma posted a photo on their official Twitter feed, with the message: "Welcome to Rome, Ashley!".

The defender left Arsenal in May 2000 as part of a deal which saw William Gallas join the Gunners, and spent eight seasons with Chelsea, during which he won the Champions League, Europa League, Premier League and four FA Cups.

Cole also earned 107 England caps, but announced his retirement from international football ahead of the World Cup after he was left out of Roy Hodgson's squad for the finals in Brazil.

It is believed that Roma’s ability to offer Cole Champions League football was the deciding factor in the move, given that their second-place finish in the Italian league last season sealed a return to Europe's elite competition.
