Ace footballer Ashley Cole is reportedly in talks with singer Jay Z to venture into the music business.
Both Ashley and Jay Z and their team of advisers have been in regular contact to discuss ways they could work together.
"Ash is a big hip-hop fan and mates with rappers like Tinchy Stryder, so it's no surprise that he wants to work with Jay-Z," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"After spending years married to Cheryl Cole he knows a bit about the business too. He's still got a good few years playing ahead of him, but is looking ahead to what he'll do when he leaves the game," the source added.
