League One side Coventry City have signed former England international Joe Cole on an emergency 35 day loan from Aston Villa, according to Sky Sports.
The thirty-three year old moved to Villa Park on a free transfer in the summer of 2014, and has played just sixteen times in all competitions, with his only goal for the club so far coming in a 1-1 draw at Burnley back in November.
His only appearance so far this season came as a substitute in the League Cup win over Notts County back in Notts County.
Prior to his move to the Midlands Cole had a second spell with West Ham – the club where he began his career, while he has also played for Chelsea and Liverpool and had a year-long loan spell with Ligue 1 side Lille in 2011/12.
He won fifty-six caps for his country and was part of the squads that attended the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cup finals.
