John Terry will attempt to clear his name once and for all this week as an independent Football Association panel decides whether they believe he directed a racist slur towards Anton Ferdinand.

Press Association Sport understands Monday will see the start of Chelsea captain Terry's personal hearing to answer an FA charge he used "abusive and/or insulting words" that "included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Anton Ferdinand" in last October's Barclays Premier League clash at QPR.

Terry has already categorically denied the charge and is set to do so again in person - at what is said to be a secret London location - more than two months after being found not guilty at Westminster Magistrates Court of calling Ferdinand a "f****** black c***".
