Former Chelsea and West Ham striker Carlton Cole has denied he's leaving Indonesia's Persib Bandung.

Cole was not included in the squad as they lost 1-0 to Bali United in midweek, with manager Umuh Muchtar quoted as telling Indonesian media outlets that the veteran had now left.

He said: “We must quickly find Cole's replacement.

“Maybe it will cost us a lot of money to do so, but that is what we have to do."

But Cole insists he is going nowhere.

Responding to the news on Twitter, the former England international said: “Haha no I haven't [left]. Where'd you get that from?"

He added: “Lol I'm alright out here for now. Hope all's well."
