Anton Ferdinand has held discussions with his lawyers about whether snubbing John Terry's handshake on Sunday would prejudice the Chelsea captain's forthcoming trial, Press Association Sport understands.
Terry and Ferdinand will face each other for the first time in the Barclays Premier League this weekend since Terry was charged with racially abusing the QPR centre-back in the reverse fixture last October.
The Football Association cancelled the pre-match handshake when the two clubs met in the FA Cup in January, but the Premier League insist that the handshake between the two sides will go ahead in Sunday's game at Stamford Bridge.
