West Brom seal Baird transfer

West Brom have announced the signing of defender Chris Baird on a one-year contract.

The versatile 32-year-old was available on a free transfer after the expiry of a short-term deal at newly-promoted Burnley.

The Northern Ireland international is the Baggies' third signing of the summer after Joleon Lescott and Craig Gardner.

Cole on verge of Roma move

Former Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole has arrived in Italy and is expected to complete his free transfer to Roma later on Monday.

The 33-year-old left-back is a free agent following his release by the Blues earlier this summer and had been linked with a number of teams.

Cole has flown to the Italian capital, with Roma posting a photo on their official Twitter feed, with the message: "Welcome to Rome, Ashley!".

Cole earned 107 England caps, but announced his retirement from international football ahead of the World Cup after he was left out of Roy Hodgson's squad for the finals in Brazil.
