Outcast Deco issues an ultimatum to Ancelotti but Cole set to pen new deal

OUT-OF-FAVOUR Chelsea midfielder Deco has warned boss Carlo Ancelotti that things must change if he is to stay at Stamford Bridge.<br /><br />The Portugal international has been linked with a move away from the west London club after enduring a disappointing debut season in the Premier League.<br /><br />Playmaker Deco, 32, made just three appearances during Guus Hiddink&rsquo;s short reign at the club but has been left in limbo after Chelsea priced him out of a move to join former boss Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.<br /><br />Now, the Brazil-born star says he is prepared for one last crack at regular first-team football before making a return to his homeland.<br /><br />&ldquo;I am getting tired of Europe, but out of respect for Chelsea, I will stay on this continent a while longer,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;I have some offers from other clubs, but if I stay at Chelsea it&rsquo;s important that some things change because things happened last year that I did not like. I have had some adaptation problems in England.&rdquo;<br /><br />Meanwhile, fellow Blues midfielder Joe Cole is close to agreeing a new four-year contract at Stamford Bridge.<br /><br />Cole was a target of his former mentor Harry Redknapp at Tottenham, but the 27-year-old, who missed the last four months of the season with a knee injury, is keen to extend his current deal which runs out in 2010.
