National treasure Cheryl Cole is set to add a new string to her bow: professional footballer.
The singer, fashion icon, hair product advertiser and X Factor judge has been singled out by top talent scout Reg Lasagne who reckons she could cut it in the English Premier League.
And Cole insiders say Cheryl is excited by the prospect.
"She sees it as a chance to prove to Ashley that she can beat him at his own game," said one.
Reg told us: "I haven't actually seen Cheryl play football, but I can tell a lot from the way she moves.
"I reckon that with a little training she could be a midfield general. She could be up there with the greats like Johann Cruyff - she's going to be that good!
"Mark my words - in a few months she'll be spraying it over the park with the best of them. Match of the Day will never be the same again."
