Chelsea defender John Terry is set to prolong his stay at Stamford Bridge by putting pen to paper on a new one-year deal.

Terry's current deal is due to expire at the end of the season - along with his fellow teammates Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole.

The Chelsea captain, unlike Lampard and Cole, is still a first-team regular at the west London outfit.

The 33-year-old centre-back has featured in 34 of Chelsea's 37 Premier League games this season - playing an important role in his side's domestic and European campaign.

Terry has reportedly agreed to take a 50 per cent pay-cut in order to extend his long-term affiliation with Chelsea.

Lampard is also set to be handed a new one-year deal as Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is keen to utilise his experience next season.

Cole, on the other hand, is expected to leave Chelsea in the summer after falling out of favour under Mourinho.

The England international said a teary goodbye to fans of the Premier League side after Chelsea's goalless draw against Norwich City in what could prove to be his last home match for the Blues.
