Terry eager to sign new Chelsea deal ahead of Mourinho reunion

John Terry will follow teammate Frank Lampard and sign a new contract with Chelsea in the hope of once again playing under Jose Mourinho, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Terry is approaching the final year of his existing deal and with Mourinho widely expected to be named as the next permanent Chelsea manager, Terry is eager to put pen to paper on fresh terms that will allow him to continue his Chelsea career under the Portuguese, who previously managed the Blues between 2004 and 2007, winning the Premier League title twice.

It is thought that midfielder Lampard, who recently became the all-time top-scorer at Chelsea, will agree a new contract in the near future, having previously been denied an extension because of his age. The Mirror claims that Mourinho insisted the 34-year-old remain at the club if he was to take over once Rafael Benitez’s interim stint in charge comes to an end.

Terry, 32, has been the subject of interest from Turkish side Galatasaray, as well as wealthy Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala, but will turn down any approach from outside if he is offered the chance to sign on for a few more years in West London, the newspaper adds.
