Cole heading to Tampa

Former England International is to move to the North American Soccer League when his contract ends in the summer.

A three-time Premier League winner, Cole has been at Coventry since joining the Sky Bet Championship side on a free transfer from Aston Villa in January.

His contract will expire at the end of the season and he has told Coventry manager Tony Mowbray that he has agreed to join Tampa Bay Rowdies.

"Joe's going to join Tampa Bay and it might happen pretty quickly if he can get international clearance etc," Mowbray told the Coventry Telegraph.

"I would have liked to have kept Joe who I think has proven his fitness and worth to the team. He's a fantastic character around our building - no airs and graces, not looking for favours or extra days off.

"He's a top guy and he has shown his football ability. It's come probably a little bit late in the day that I have felt as if I could trust him to play in the centre of midfield alongside John Fleck.

"I think Joe can help us control football matches but he's made his decision for his family, I think, and we wish him well because he's been fantastic for our dressing room and this football club."

As well as his Premier League success, Cole also won the FA Cup three times during his eight year spell at Chelsea.
