Jose Mourinho is ready to reward John Terry by granting the Chelsea skipper a new one-year contract extension.

Speaking to reporters prior to the Hull City game as reported by the Daily Mail, Mourinho hinted that a deal for Terry is close to being agreed - in line with Chelsea's policy of only offering players over the age of 30 one year extensions.

Terry, 34, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and will be free to talk to other clubs abroad from next month.

But it's thought he's keen to stay at Chelsea, where he has spent his entire career and it's only a formality as Mourinho believes Terry could play at the highest level for at least three more seasons.

"Every individual is an individual," Mourinho said. "There are old players at the age of 22. I know some - 22 and old. I know young guys at 36 or 37. John is one of them. I had Javier Zanetti at Inter who was already 37.

"When the other guys came after a day off from training, he'd run from his home to burn the energy from his day off. I don't know [how long Terry can play].

"You never know when. The important thing is that, tomorrow, it's the next match and he's in great condition to play."

It sounds like Mourinho will ask the Chelsea board to sort out Terry's contract to make sure he's a Chelsea player next season.

After all, he's been an ever present this season alongside Gary Cahill at the heart of the defence, and talented youngster Kurt Zouma has not yet managed to dislodge either.
