Chelsea offer John Terry new one-year deal

The club legend’s future has been the source of much speculation in recent months.

CHELSEA CAPTAIN JOHN Terry has been offered a new one-year deal, the English Premier League club said Friday.

The 35-year-old centre-half, who has spent his entire senior club career with the west London side, is out of contract at the end of the season.

In January, he said he would not be extending his time at Stamford Bridge, only for Chelsea to counter that a new offer was possible.

And on Friday a Chelsea spokesperson said: “(Director) Marina Granovskaia and (chairman) Bruce Buck met with John and his agent this week and offered him a one-year contract extension.

With it coming so late in the season, this is a big decision for John and his family and it is something that they are now considering.”

There had been speculation that last week’s loss at Sunderland, where Terry was sent off, marked the end of his Chelsea career as he is now banned from Sunday’s final game of the season at home to Leicester City — their successors as Premier League champions.
