The LA Galaxy have reportedly expressed an interest in bringing Ashley Cole to MLS for weeks, and it appears as though the final hurdle has been cleared to complete the move.

According to the LA Times, AS Roma has bought out the remaining few months of the former English national team defender’s contract. An official announcement of his move to the Galaxy reportedly could be made by Tuesday.

The report also says that the Galaxy are nearing deals with 32-year-old Belgian defender Jelle van Damme and 31-year-old AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong.

Cole, 35, has not made an appearance for Roma since March 2015, but he previously played in 14 games during the 2014-15 season for the Serie A side.

What do you think of this development? Will Cole do well in MLS? Think the signing is good for the Galaxy?
