England defender Ashley Cole signs contract extension at Chelsea
has signed a one-year contract extension at Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge for another season.
The England left-back was out of contract with the Blues at the end of the current campaign, with recent speculation linking him with a move away.
But the 32-year-old has agreed to extend his current deal by a further 12 months, meaning it will now expire at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Cole is one of five players in the running to be named as England Player Of The Year for 2012. The winner will be announced at the England Awards Night at St. George's Park on Sunday 3 February 2013.
