Terry wants to play for three more years

Chelsea captain John Terry says he can play at the top level for another three years.

The 35-year-old, who will miss Saturday's Premier League match against Stoke City with the hamstring injury that has sidelined him from the Blues' last four games, is out of contract at the end of the season and has not been offered a new deal by the Premier League champions.

Terry, who says he will play abroad if Chelsea do not offer him a new deal, insists he can play on until he is 38.

"I'm probably feeling in the last three or four years the best physical condition that I've ever been in," he said at a fundraiser for the charity Willow.

"As a youngster you take it for granted; you eat what you want, you can train, have a rest, but when you get older you can't. You can't eat the pastas, the breads, it all goes out of the window. The sleep too.

"That aspect of it has a big impact, and I've certainly seen the impact of that."

Terry says he is willing to listen to any offers, but hopes that Chelsea will relent and extend his 21-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

"We're not sure [where] yet. [Europe] is an option for sure, it's in Chelsea's hands, and as I have said I've made it clear to the club I want to stay," he continued.

"That's down to the club. What will be will be. I've had an unbelievable 21 years there. We'll see, only time will tell.

"If not, I will be playing. I don't know whether that will be Italy, MLS, China, Qatar, I really don't know at the moment."
