Chelsea eager to hold on to Cole

Sunday, June 6, 2010
With 5 Premier League clubs interested in his services, Chelsea are yet to give up on Joe Cole. The tricky winger whose contract runs out at Chelsea on July 1st is a major Summer transfer discussion.

All of Man Utd, Arsenal, Tottenham, Man City and West Ham have been rumoured to be interested and Chelsea have delayed the extension of his contract. However Chelsea assistant coach Ray Wilkins insists that he and Ancelotti will do everything they can to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

"We've obviously been in dialogue with Joe for months now and it's pretty evident that Carlo and myself would love Joe to stay but it's down now to the club to see what we can do.

"We sincerely hope Joe stays with us - he's a smashing guy and he's a wonderful footballer so we'll keep our fingers crossed."

Althouh he may have lost some pace from his persistant injuries over the years, I still think Chelsea should do everything they can to keep him. He's Chelsea's only real flair player and his trickery can turn any defender inside out.
