Chelsea have hit back at suggestions they have left captain John Terry in the dark over transfer interest from Manchester City.

Reports have suggested that Terry is furious nobody at the club has spoken to him since City tabled a £30million bid last week.

But a Chelsea source told Press Association Sport: "It is total nonsense to suggest that the club has not spoken to John Terry recently."

The source added: "We've spoken to him a number of times and we'll talk again when he gets back from holiday.

"He is well aware of our position that he is not for sale and he was pleased that both the club and the manager publicly took that position as we discussed it with him."

The England skipper was reported as feeling 'betrayed and even unwanted' and it was even claimed the defender wanted showdown talks with the club's owner Roman Abramovich.

But Chelsea insist they are set to sit down and hold more talks with Terry when he returns from holiday on Thursday.

Terry takes home £20,000 a week less than his England team-mate Frank Lampard, who is on £150,000 a week but it is almost certain the club will offer him an improved deal.

Terry has played 272 games for Chelsea and scored 17 goals in 11 senior years at the club. He joined aged just 14 and led the club to its first league title for 50 years in 2004-5.
