Despite only having one match remaining this season, the future surrounding their captain John Terry still appears to be uncertain.

The defender’s contract expires in the summer and he announced earlier this season that he is yet to offered a new deal and will be leaving the club.

Incoming boss Antonio Conte hasn’t moved to offer Terry a new deal so the 35-year-old believed his time was up and he and the club organised a farewell tribute for his 18 years of incredible service.

However, The Sun are now reporting that this event has now been cancelled prompting rumours that the Stamford Bridge club are set to offer Terry a new 12-month deal.

But that’s not the only incident has been fuelled speculation that Terry is set to stay.

The club had planned to honour the skipper at their end of season awards with a section paying their respect to the “captain, leader, legend.”

But, organisers of the event were ordered to remove that section from the bash.

Terry has already played his final match of the season after getting sent-off against Sunderland last weekend - his second red card of the campaign resulting in a 10 match ban.

Many believed that would mean he has played his final match for the west London club but that may now not be the case.

Following the club’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Wednesday, caretaker boss Guus Hiddink hinted that Terry, who has played more than 700 times for the club, could remain at the club he joined as a 14-year-old.

"Let's wait to see what happens in the upcoming days on this issue," he told Sky Sports.

“Of course John is in contact every day with us and he has made such a long career that the fans appreciate him highly.

"We will see regarding his near future, let's wait a bit.

"Hopefully both are wise parties and let's hope for the best. It is difficult to see which direction it is going."

Chelsea fans will, no doubt, be delighted with this latest report with them holding banners in recent weeks urging the club to offer him a new deal.

It seems they could now get their wish.
