Everton target Cole: I’m not thinking about retirement

Cole said: “I’m enjoying my football. Ask any player and they will all tell you being at Fratton Park is a great atmosphere to play in.

“If Harry didn’t think I could still do a job then he would have let me go in the transfer window.

“I know I can still play at this level. I’ve got 18 months left on my contract and I will see what happens after that.

“I’m not thinking about retirement. At my age you just want to enjoy playing as long as you can.”
