The 33-year-old spent 8 seasons with the west London outfit after moving from Premier League rivals Arsenal in 2006.

"Thank u Chelsea FC for making my 8 years there a pleasure to work all the staff and players, we've been through a lot, good and bad."

"And now I'll be looking for another journey in my life hope it can be like my others full of fun and of course WIN something."
Cole was kept on the sidelines by Blues boss Jose Mourinho for the majority of the season, opting to play Cesar Azpilicueta in lieu of the former.
