Chelsea defender John Terry is hoping for a new 12 month deal with the Londoners in the summer, with the former England international admitting the decision lies firmly on the club, reports BBC
Terry has been a long-serving patron of Chelsea since making his debut back in 1998, but is 34 now. The talented central defender has been a regular for manager Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese boss made his return to Stamford Bridge in 2013, but his deal with the London club runs out in the summer. He’s made more than 650 appearances over 16 years at Chelsea, and recently acknowledged that the decision over his future will be made the club.
Despite his advancing age, the form of John Terry has continued to be impressive at the heart of the backline, and he looks more resolute than ever. As a result of such impressive form for Chelsea, the centre-back wants to stay another year with the Blues. He’s the most successful ever Chelsea captain, but is wary of the exits made by his other former long-serving teammates Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard.
