Chelsea captain John Terry says there is no place he would rather end his career than Stamford Bridge.
The 30-year-old is already committed to the club until 2014, but is now desperate to sign a contact extension in order to keep him in west London until retirement.
"I'm hoping to get an extension on my contract of at least another year - I really am," said Terry.
"I will try to stay here as long as I can. I love this football club and I never want to leave."
Terry is the most successful captain in Chelsea's history, with the Blues having won 10 trophies under his stewardship.
Terry's desire to succeed with Chelsea and pride at being the Blues' skipper is evident to see and, contrary to accusations levelled at some professionals, the England defender takes defeats as badly as anyone on the terraces.
"I'm like the fans in that I take it home with me - and whenever we lose I take it out on the people closest to me," he added.
"I'm very fortunate to be captain of such a fantastic club."
Terry also recently passed 500 appearances for Chelsea and continues to show no signs of letting up.
