John Terry was left on the verge of tears after a moving tribute in his honour was played during Chelsea's end of season awards ceremony.

The Blues defender may have played his last game for the club after a glittering 18-year career at Stamford Bridge. The 34-year-old is suspended for Chelsea's final game of the season against Leicester after being sent off against Sunderland, and as it stands he will leave the club when his contract expires this summer.

It was announced yesterday that Terry had been offered a new deal - although it would appear all is not as it seems. The former England defender took to Instagram to reveal he has been offered a 'different role', although didn't elaborate what that was.

He wrote: "Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes. The contract extension the club has offered me is a different role and I hope everyone will understand I want to take the time to consider it carefully before making a decision."

With his future up in the air, it was certainly an emotional night at Chelsea's end-of-season awards ceremony, where WIllian was named the club's player of the year.

Footage of the ceremony has now emerged, and Terry looks to be particularly moved during a video tribute that looked back over the highlights of his career, designed to mark his 700th game but which also may serve to be the perfect goodbye.

Interestingly, the Chelsea skipper chose not to stay in his seat and not give a speech during the event.

A particularly moving segment of the video saw Gianluca Vialli, who gave Terry his debut at Chelsea, pay tribute to the defender.

"You've been a great captain, a great leader, a great legend of the club," the Italian said. '" wish you all the best for the future. There is a future after football, don't forget that. You can find happiness anywhere without feeling the need of kicking a ball around but well done, enjoy your family and your life."

Do you think Terry will be at Chelsea next season?
