John Terry celebrated his late winner for Chelsea in their match against Everton by challenging the club to offer him a new deal.

The Blues captain got the faintest of touches on Frank Lampard's injury-time cross to divert the ball past Tim Howard and send his team top of the Premier League, even if only for a few hours.

Attention then switched to his own future after the game, and the 33-year-old appears desperate to remain at Stamford Bridge.

"It's a long time I've been here. I'm loving every minute and always have done," Terry told BT Sport after the clash was over.

"I'd certainly love to stay but that's down to the club. You'd have to ask the club that question. I can't answer that for them."

Terry's current deal expires in summer and the former England captain will be hoping that his good form this year will convince the club to extend his 16-year stay in West London.

Having lost his place in the team under Rafael Benitez's temporary stewardship last season, the centre-back has been back to his best this time around and has formed a solid partnership with Gary Cahill.

Jose Mourinho, in his second stint in charge at Stamford Bridge, looks to have rejuvenated the player that was instrumental in the Portuguese's first spell, in which the Blues won two Premier League titles.

Terry has played at Chelsea all of his professional career, apart from a short loan away at Nottingham Forest in his youth, and has won three Premier Leagues, five FA Cups and one Champions League trophy across over 600 appearances.
