That would depend on us getting a long term replacement. If Buttner can do the job or we get somebody who can then obviously you do not need Cole, but if not then Cole would be a good player for a season or two while we find somebody.
Hate the prick but think it would be a good short term solution. Can't see it happening mind, Evra would probably have to leave first and if he's stalling on a Chelsea contract it must be something to do with wages and it's unlikely we'll offer more. There's the Ferdinand issue as well.
