BREAKING NEWS: LA Galaxy complete Cole signing


LA Galaxy have announced the signing of former Arsenal, Chelsea and Roma defender Ashley Cole.

The 35-year-old agreed to terminate his contract at the Stadio Olimpico this month after being deemed surplus to requirements by former head coach Rudi Garcia.

Cole has now completed a switch to MLS, where he will link up with former England team-mate Steven Gerrard in Los Angeles.

"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."
