Chelsea captain John Terry is resigned to leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, according to the Mirror.

The 33-year-old, who has not missed a single minute of Premier League football this season, is reportedly frustrated by the delay in being offered a new contract.

Terry's current deal expires at the season - and it's believed that the talismanic central defender is keen to secure a three-year deal.

However, Chelsea are only prepared to offer Terry a one-year contract.

With little chance of a compromise over the length of the deal, the former England skipper has reportedly accepted that he will leave the west London outfit at the end of the season.

It must be noted, however, that Terry's teammate Frank Lampard found himself in a similar situation last season.

It looked certain that Lampard would leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the 2012/13 campaign, but an impressive second half of the season led to him agreeing a new one-year deal last May.
