Chelsea defender Ashley Cole will reportedly delay any decision on his future until the summer.

Ashley Cole has decided to wait until the end of the season before deciding whether he will remain at Chelsea, according to reports.

The 33-year-old has seen his playing time limited under Jose Mourinho this season, with the Chelsea manager regularly preferring to play Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back.

Cole's current deal expires at the end of the current season and he is yet to agree to an extension at the club he joined from Arsenal in 2006.

Chelsea are expected to offer Cole a one-year contract in the near future but he will only make his decision after considering all of his options in the summer, according to The Metro.

England manager Roy Hodgson admitted earlier this week that Cole faces a battle to remain first choice for his country due competition for his place from Leighton Baines and Luke Shaw.
