Premier League: John Terry wants to stay at Chelsea

Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed he wants to sign a new contract with the Blues. He is suspended for two matches after getting sent off on Saturday at Sunderland, so he won't play in any of the final two fixtures of the season, but he might be at Stamford Bridge for the next campaign. His contract runs out at the end of the current season, the 35-year-old skipper wants to continue but the decision will be made by the next permanent manager, Italy's Antonio Conte.

"I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully at Chelsea," Terry said. "I'm a Chelsea player and Chelsea's been my club from the age of 14. I love Chelsea." He has made no less than 703 appearances for the club, more than 500 of them as captain, since making his debut back in December 1998.

Former Chelsea coach Steve Clark said he can't understand why the club would let John Terry leave this summer, considering his background at Stamford Bridge. The club still hold him in high regard, so they allowed him to hire the stadium for a match with his friends next Monday, after the Premier League season will be completed. Moreover, the club won't charge Terry for this, even though they usually require 22,000 pounds for hiring the ground.

Chelsea are 5/1 at Bet365 to win next season's Premier League title

    I'm supporting Chelsea since I was a kid, and when I say Chelsea i think John Terry, Lampard, Peter Cech and Drogba. True Chelsea legends.I was really sad when Drogba and Lampard left and because of that I really hope that they will give him another year, because he deserve it. He can still play on a high level, and i want to remember Chelsea the way i used to. :)

    These are all great players and a true legends of the club, but their age are the main reason of that.
    Club need some fresh blood, young players. John Terry is 35 years old, plays in a position which is very important in a team. Any young striker in the race will left him in the dust.
    It is natural that these players are leaving, they can be angry, but they can't play forever on a high level.

    As an Chelsea fan I can't be grateful enough to this man for what he has done for the club. True legend, and I certainly hope that they won't be treating him same way they did to Frank Lampard. That was out of the line, and for Terry who has been captain for almost a decade now should be getting new contract, doesn't matter if Antonio Conte sees him in starting eleven or not.

    His time at Chelsea is over. He made good results, won a lot of championships, cups. The team needs younger players. For him the best move is to go to a club from MLS league. It will promote football and earn some good money. When he finished definitively career club should function assigned to the team,he deserved it.

    John Terry is a true living legend of Chelsea football club.I hope he will be offered a new contract by Chelsea.That would be great way to say thanks for all the things he has done for the Blues.On the other side,if Chelsea does not offer contract to Terry,I hope he would end his career and prove his loyalty to the club.

    Nothing could be more logical than that news, he spent all his career there and I think he's still their most valuable defender so Chelsea management have to do all to resign with Terry I think. I'm sure there's other options available for him too but he'll be more than happy to stay where he is probably.
