Former England defender Ashley Cole has signed for the LA Galaxy, the MLS team have announced.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea defender, who was most recently at Roma, will link up Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Serie A club in July 2014 after becoming surplus to requirements at Chelsea , but struggled to make an impact in Italy and his contract was terminated earlier this month.

“Ashley is one of the world’s most successful defenders and has played at the highest level of competition throughout his career,” said LA Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena. “He can provide our defence with valuable experience. We look forward to his contribution to our club this season.”

The left-back has 107 caps for his country and has won three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups, one League Cup, a Champions League and Europa League during a decorated career.
