Cole looks set to depart this summer on a free

Chelsea left back Ashley Cole is hinting on Twitter this evening that he and the Blues will be parting ways. Here's what he had to say:

If this past season was the end of the road for Ashley Cole and Chelsea, it was one heck of a run with the club. The left back spent the best years of his career in the Blue half of London, and was one of the key players during the most successful spell in Chelsea's history.

The impending departure means that Chelsea will either be in the market for a new left back this summer, or that one of Ryan Bertrand of Patrick van Aanholt will be given a shot with the first team next season. Either way, I'm sure most Chelsea fans will look back fondly to Cole's tenure with the club.
