Ashley Cole is attempting to win ex-wife Cheryl Cole back by buying her a Chihuahua puppy for her birthday, according to tabloid reports. The Sun claim that the footballing star is also planning a romantic holiday with the Girls Aloud beauty, following her X Facto USA axe.
The pair divorced last year following cheating allegations in the press, but recently it's been speculated that the pair have reignited their relationship together.
A family friend told the newspaper: "Ashley has wanted to get her another pup for some time, but the moment hasn't been right till now.
"He now knows he's well in and has called a breeder. He also wants Cheryl to go away with him in total privacy so he can convince her they've a future as a couple. He expects her to agree."
The pair recently spent a night together in their ex-marital home and its understood the relationship could be what cost her the job on the US X Factor.
A pal said recently: "Cheryl was meant to be concentrating on the American X Factor. Simon warned her not to be seduced by ‘Happy ever after’ words from Ashley. He said the Americans would drop her like a hot brick if she allowed such a cheat back into her life. But she didn’t listen."
Cheryl's spokesperson has yet to comment on the rumours.
