Chelsea captain John Terry has set his sights on another contract with the club, after admitting that his playing days are not over just yet.

According to the Metro, the long-serving Blues skipper is hoping that his performances of late will convince Jose Mourinho that he is deserved of an extension, despite speculation that this season might be his last.

Terry scored in his 400th Premier League appearance at the weekend- a 3-1 victory over Southampton which took Chelsea to second place in the table.

And the former England international, who turns 33 this coming Saturday, is aiming to impress the powers that be at the Stamford Bridge club so that they will hand him a new deal.

"‘The stats don’t lie and my career doesn’t lie," Terry said.

"The fans have been patient with me throughout my whole career.

"Hopefully I’ve got a lot more to give for them and the football club. Hopefully these milestones keep coming."

Terry, who has recently rubbished claims that he would move abroad to finish his career, has also set his sights on securing another Premier League medal for himself. However he knows that it won't be easy, admitting that competition in England's elite division was as strong as its ever been.

"The Premier League is more open than I’ve ever seen it," he said.

‘We saw that with Hull beating Liverpool. It was important [to beat Southampton] with Man U and Liverpool dropping points. It was a chance to push on and pull away from them."
