Ashley Cole's Chelsea contract expires in a few short weeks, meaning the 33-year-old will become a free agent.

The Telegraph has reported Cole isn't expecting to be offered a new deal, either—explaining why the left-back was in tears at the end of Chelsea's draw with Norwich City on Sunday.

The Blues are rumored to be in the market for a left-back to replace Cole this summer, with the likes of The Mirror's Simon Mullock and Metro's Daniel Jones linking Jose Mourinho with a move for Southampton's Luke Shaw.
