John Terry is regarded as a legend by all Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern for his efforts on the football pitch and news today that he expects to play out the rest of his career at Stamford Bridge has been welcomed.
The 32-year-old defender’s current five-year contract expires in 2014 but he has told the London Evening Standard that he expects the club to increase this which will see him to the end of his career with the Blues.
Contract negotiations had been delayed until the end of the season which led to talk that he has being phased out of the club but Terry was quick to deny this.
“I’ve got a year left at Chelsea after this,” Terry said in the London Evening Standard. “People have spoken about no new contract and this kind of thing but it’s not even on the agenda at the moment.
“They may sit down with me once the season has finished and we’ll start talking then. Whether it’s a yes or a no I’ll continue to give my very best until my contract finishes.”
The former England captain has spent the season being heavily rotated and his relationship with interim manager Rafael Benitez has been questioned but Blues fans are delighted to hear that the Stamford Bridge legend expects a longer stay.
