Premier League side Crystal Palace are planning to sign former Arsenal and Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole on loan, according to reports.
DailyMail revealed earlier today that Roma summer singing Ashley Cole is on Crystal Palace’s radar as the English side are eyeing to bring him back to his homeland.
Cole joined the Serie A side in summer following his expiration of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Cole played a season on loan at Crystal Palace in 1999-2000 when he was at Arsenal. He has already told in the past that he would like to play again for the Eagles one day. Cole made 14 appearacnes for Palace.
Palace manager Neil Warnock is keen to sign a new left-back in the coming window and reports have revealed that Cole would be a perfect option for him.
Palace did try in the summer for the Englishman prior to his move to Roma but the deal failed as the English side sacked Tony Pulis to appoint new boss Neil Warnock.
The former England international has a contract of £80k per-week according to sources, but it would be difficult for them to pay such amount as they can afford 40k at maximum.
The 33-year-old is also keen to return to England as he is struggling for the playing time in Italy.
