Terry offered new Chelsea deal

John Terry has been offered a new one-year contract by Chelsea.

Terry announced in January that he expected to leave the club at the end of the season as he had not been offered a new contract, but he has repeatedly stated a desire to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Brondby IF's YouTube channel on Monday, Terry made it clear he wanted to sign a new deal with the club.

"I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that's at Chelsea," Terry said.

Terry and his agent met with chairman Bruce Buck and director Marina Granovskaia this week to discuss a new contract and the club captain is currently considering the offer of a new one-year deal.

"It is announced in the press conference that John Terry has been offered a one-year contract extension. John is considering the offer. #CFC" the club confirmed on Twitter.

Terry joined Chelsea at the age of 14 and has played over 700 games for the club, winning four Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the Champions League during his long career at Stamford Bridge.

"Marina Granovskaia and Bruce Buck met with John and his agent this week and offered him a one-year contract extension," a statement from Chelsea read.

"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."

Guus Hiddink had hinted at a new contract for Terry following Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield and news of the offer was revealed ahead of his final press conference.

"It's good to have big players in a club who are big personalities," Hiddink said.

"I'm always in favour, generally, that players, ex-players - I'm not talking about John now - are having a lot of influence in the culture of the club.

"Maybe, I don't know when, in the future, it's also for John.

"Twenty, 21 years at the club is huge. That's why they become legends. You must cherish those legends for the future as well."

Terry will miss Sunday's game against Leicester through suspension following his dismissal at Sunderland.
