New Everton manager Frank Lampard is expected to add former Chelsea team-mate Ashley Cole to his coaching staff at Goodison Park on Wednesday.
Ashley Cole is currently working with Chelsea’s academy as well as being a coach with England’s U21 squad.
But following discussions to bring Cole on board at Goodison Park, it is expected that the 41-year-old will join Lampard’s backroom team on Wednesday.
The pair spent eight years together at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League title, four FA Cups, the Champions League and two League Cups.
Lampard has already brought in Joe Edwards from Chelsea as his assistant manager, former Derby, Reading and Swansea manager Paul Clement as a first-team coach and Chris Jones, who was part of his set-up at Derby.
The new Everton boss has kept on former caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson and goalkeeper coach Alan Kelly.
