Cole fails in 'tapping-up' appeal
Ashley Cole
Cole originally appealed to the CAS back in September
Ashley Cole has failed in his bid to get the Court of Arbitration (CAS) to judge his appeal against a 75,000 fine for breaking Premier League rules.

The Arsenal defender, 25, was issued the fine after discussing a possible move to Chelsea while under contract.

But a CAS statement said the Premier League's regulations "do not contain any reference to a right of appeal to the CAS.

"As this decision terminates the arbitration procedure, it will stand."

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho also was fined 75,000 in the dispute and the club 300,000 pounds by the Premier League in August of which neither appealed.

Cole's lawyer had questioned last year why footballers could not speak to prospective future employers.
