As we reported just a couple of days back, Ashley Cole is going nowhere, and it would seem that his contract talks are actually due to start now, and have in no way ‘stalled’ like some press sources have claimed.

Cole spoke out today through his official Twitter account saying “contract talks have not stalled, just started, and 200k are you for real, I’d never ask that”

ESPN had earlier claimed that Ashley Cole had stalled on contract talks with Chelsea and that the player had demanded 200k a week wages to stay at Stamford Bridge.

It would now seem that this is not truer and Ashley Cole is about to start negotiations with Chelsea to sign a new contract.

His current deal runs out at the end of 2013 and Chelsea officials are keen to get the left back committed to the club for the forseeable future.
