Terry could stay at Chelsea

Club could yet offer new deal

Chelsea could do a u-turn and offer John Terry a new contract.

The Blues legend revealed yesterday that he will be leaving the club he joined as a 14-year-old when his contract expires in the summer after Chelsea said no to a new deal.

However, noises from within Stamford Bridge are suggesting that nothing is written in stone and that Terry may yet be offered a new deal.

For his part, Terry said that he is feeling fit and believes he has another few years of playing at the top level left in him.

"Ideally, I would have loved to stay, but the club's moving in a different direction," he said.

"It will be elsewhere for sure. I couldn't play for another Premier League club.

"It's not going to be a fairytale ending. I'm not going to retire at Chelsea, which it took me a couple of days to get over.

"I feel as though I'm in great nick, I'm playing great and I've got a couple of years to go."

Terry's statement appears to have garnered a reaction from the club, which may have been his intention all along.

"John was advised that while no new deal was currently on the table, that situation could change in the coming months," a spokesman said.

"The club has the utmost respect for John and everything he has helped us achieve to date.

"He is a fantastic servant of Chelsea and a superb captain. As such, the club will keep the channels of dialogue open."
