LONDON - Ashley Cole has indicated he's likely to leave Chelsea after eight years when his contract expires in June.

The 33-year-old England defender revealed on Twitter that he is "weighing up my options for playing next season with my agent and sadly it does not look like Chelsea will be one of them."

Cole, who earned 107 caps for England, retired from international football after missing selection in the World Cup squad for Brazil.

His pending departure from Stamford Bridge follows a season in which he was restricted to 17 Premier League appearances, with Jose Mourinho preferring Cesar Azpilicueta in defence.

Cole joined Chelsea from Arsenal in 2006 and has won a league title, four FA Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League with the Blues.
