Football News

John Terry's uncertain future at Chelsea has long been a subject of interest for football fans.

The 35-year-old was told earlier this year by the club that his contract wouldn't be extended beyond this summer, threatening to bring his 18-year stay at Stamford Bridge to a close.

Chelsea's decision was met by much frustration and disappointment by supporters, with the general consensus being that Terry's experience and leadership were assets they could ill-afford to lose following a woeful defence of their Premier League title.

However, light has at last been shed on what the future could hold.

According to BBC Sport, Chelsea have offered captain Terry a one-year contract, with the centre-back now weighing up his options.

The club have since released a statement: "With it coming so late in the season, this is a big decision for John and his family and it is something that they are now considering."

Time is of the essence for Terry yet he will at least have the whole of this weekend to make a decision given he is suspended for Sunday's clash with Premier League champions Leicester City.

News that Chelsea's skipper has been offered a one-year stay has spread like wildfire, with fans unsurprisingly happy with the announcement.


Chelsea will now await Terry's response, although there's a sense their offer might have come too little too late.
