Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole could miss the start of the Premiership season after injuring ankle ligaments in training, according to reports.
Cole has seen a specialist about the injury, which he sustained in training.
If it is as serious as feared, Cole could also be ruled out of England's friendly against Ukraine at St James' Park on 18 August.
With Paul Scholes retired from the international game, Cole is keen to prove his England credentials.
