Crystal Palace fans fill the Football Transfer Tavern with optimism after the Daily Mail linked them with an audacious move to land Roma full back Ashley Cole on loan.
The Eagles are renewing their interest in their former loanee and ex-Chelsea star after trying to sign the defender at the beginning of the season.
Palace will do all they can to land the ex-England international star who has won 107 caps, after Neil Warnock made it his top priority to sign a new left back.
Many people may have forgotten but in 2000 Cole enjoyed a successful loan spell at Selhurst Park and Warnock will hope that the former Arsenal man is feeling nostalgic in the twilight of his career.
There is speculation regarding Ashley Cole’s future at Roma after being dropped from Rudi Garcia’s first team in their last five matches.
The biggest issue would be wages because Cole earns up to £80,000 a week with the Giallorossi whilst Palace’s budget is £40,000-a-week at a push.
But some Palace fans are clinging on to the words Cole said in an interview he conducted in 2010 where he said he would like to return to Selhurst Park one day.
Crystal Palace fans. Do you think you could get Cole in on loan this January or is this a far-fetched rumour? Let us know your thoughts below.
