Pic: Ashley Cole confirms Roma switch by taking a selfie with their really cool jersey

One of the more unlikely transfer moves of the summer was confirmed today.

Former Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole’s move to AS Roma was confirmed today, with the 33-year old putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Serie A giants.

Cole was released by Chelsea after the end of last season, which prompted interest in the defender from a number of clubs, but it is Roma who won the race to secure his signature; the club confirmed the deal this evening and released a number of pictures of Cole on their Twitter account, including one of him taking a selfie with their ridiculously cool home jersey.

Surely that’s not going to become a thing when players sign for a new club from now on, is it?
