Rumours about that Jose Mourinho and Peter Kenyon illegally met with Ashely Cole

Ashley Cole has not had a secret meeting with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and chief executive Peter Kenyon last week, the Arsenal defender's agent said. 

It was claimed that the alleged meeting took place in a London hotel and contravened Premier League rules. 

However Jonathan Barnett, who represents the England star, has dismissed the story.

He said: "Any suggestion that Ashley Cole has spoken to anyone at Chelsea is total and utter nonsense.  There is no problem between Ashley and Arsenal. Ashley is extremely happy at Arsenal - he has neither asked for nor considered a move."

Cole, 24, is under contract at Highbury until 2007.
