Chelsea transfers: John Terry discusses his Stamford Bridge future
The Chelsea captain is confident that he will be offered a new contract before the end of the season
John Terry is hoping to extend his contract with Chelsea beyond the summer.
The 34-year-old centre-half’s current deal expires at the end of the season and the veteran defender is yet to be offered a new contract by the west London club.
I want to stay and hopefully my performances are showing that
However, the former England captain is not concerned about his future and is confident that the Blues will put a new deal on the table before the season is out.
“No talks have happened yet but the club know my position. Hopefully I know theirs and it will get done,” Terry is quoted as saying by ESPN.
“I think we both respect the position. There are a lot more important players to sort out. Eden Hazard has just signed a new contract and, for me, that’s the most important for the club.
“I want to stay and hopefully my performances are showing that, and they can keep me.”
Terry has been in fine form for Jose Mourinho’s men this season. He has started all 25 of the Blues’ Premier League games to help them build a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
The Chelsea captain has scored three goals in the top flight this season, while also notching up two goals and two assists during the Champions League group stage.
Chelsea’s next game is a Premier League clash with Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
