ASHLEY Cole's agent has blasted rumours that his client is set for a loan move to Crystal Palace in January.
It was reported late on Tuesday night that the former England star could seek first team action at Selhurst Park after falling out of favour at Roma.
However, his representatives at Stellar Group has rubbished the speculation.
David Manasseh, the Group's managing director, has told the Evening Standard: "Ashley is loving life in Italy and in Rome. He has never been happier.
"Whoever has given this information out is a disgrace because all it does is give fans of a football club false hope.
"Ashley is concentrating on trying to win trophies in Italy and, in particular, Serie A this season. Nothing else."
