Cole: Focusing on England
Joe Cole is remaining coy on his future at Chelsea insisting he is focused on going to the World Cup with England.
The midfielder has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge when his contract expires next month.
Cole's contract talks have stalled and a number of clubs are thought to be waiting in the wings to lure the former West Ham man away from West London.
Cole, who was named in Fabio Capello's provisional 30-man World Cup squad, is not thinking about his future and is concentrating on securing his spot on the plane for South Africa.
"My focus is on the World Cup now," Cole told Sky Sports News. "It is important my mind is focused on that.
"I have got an opportunity to go to South Africa and I want to go there, I want to play and that's where my full focus and attention is going to be.
"I am going away with England on Wednesday so I will spend time with my family and my 100 per cent focus is going to the World Cup and trying to help England win that."
