Ashley Cole signs for Roma

Former England left-back Ashley Cole has signed for Serie A side Roma.

The 33-year-old was a free agent after his contract with Chelsea expired and he has signed a two-year-deal with the Italian club.

Cole represented his country on 107 occasions and only retired from international football in May.

He has won The FA Cup a record seven times (three with Arsenal, four with Chelsea) and he helped Arsenal clinch the League and Cup double in 2002 before joining the Blues in 2006.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, Cole lifted another League and Cup double in 2010, the UEFA Champions League in 2012 and the UEFA Europa League the following season.
