PSG deny preparing transfer window swoop for Ashley Cole

Ashley Cole: PSG deny preparing January bid

Paris Saint-Germain have denied they are set to make a move for Chelsea defender Ashley Cole.

Cole has been linked with a move to the big-spending Parisians since Carlo Ancelotti - the former Chelsea boss - took over the Ligue 1 side.

"We have never spoken with Ashley Cole, there has never been any contact. Carlo was his coach at Chelsea, that's why that story is doing the rounds."

"We have never spoken with Ashley Cole, there has never been any contact," he said.
