John Terry closing in on new Chelsea deal

Published Add your comment

Chelsea's talismanic captain John Terry is very likely to be offered a new contract at the club, reports Sky Sports.

This can only mean good news for Chelsea fans as the veteran's experience can help The Blues challenge for all honours this campaign, and especially the Premier League.

Terry, who scored in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham on Saturday, hadn't featured as much last season and failed to cement a regular place in the starting XI.

However, since the re-appointment of Jose Mourinho, Terry has been included in every league game thus far, and this goes to show that he will be a major factor to Chelsea's success this season.

And Mourinho himself believes there are big things to come from him if he continues to play the way he has.

"I think he always has a future the way he is playing - he has a future here, in China, or wherever he wants to have a future," said Mourinho.

"I have always told him from day one - don't speak (publicly) about signing a new contract, just speak about working very hard from physical point of view so you don't have the same kind of problems you have had in the past two years and then you play regularly.

"He is a very good player and very good players have no problems with their contracts.

"I think the fact that he knows that I like him has been important. I trust the player. This is imporant."
