John Terry has reiterated his desire to stay at Chelsea beyond the end of the season.
Terry's contract with Chelsea is due to expire in the summer and in January the 35-year-old announced that he would be leaving the club as he has not been offered a new deal.
His dismissal during Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Sunderland means he will miss Chelsea’s final two games of the season, but the club captain hopes it does not signal the end of his Stamford Bridge career.
"I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that's at Chelsea," Terry said.
"I'm a Chelsea player and that has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea."
Terry has been linked with a coaching role at Brondby IF after travelling to Denmark to watch the team defeat Nordsjaelland on Monday, but speaking to the club's YouTube channel, the defender was quick to play down the speculation.
"I knew about Brondby as a kid growing up, I used to watch all their big games," he explained.
"They were a huge club for me growing up and since meeting Jan (Anderson, owner) a few years ago, we're great family friends and Jan's been inviting me over for the last couple of years.
"I've been promising him I'd come over and thankfully, with the schedules back in England, I've managed to come over today and watch the game, which I'm very excited about.
"It's great to be here and to support Jan and the team today."
