Former England defender Ashley Cole has agreed terms with Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy after leaving Roma.

Cole, 35, is free to join former England team-mate Steven Gerrard after his contract with the Italian club was terminated by mutual consent.

The ex-Chelsea and Arsenal left-back joined the Serie A side in July 2014 and made 16 appearances.

Capped 107 times, Cole has won three Premier Leagues, seven FA Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League.

Roma sacked manager Rudi Garcia on 13 January after a poor run of just one win since the beginning of November.
