Chelsea captain John Terry is desperate to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond this season. The 35-year-old central defender is out of contract at the end of the campaign, but revealed he has not given up hope of staying at the club.
Terry may well have kicked his last ball in a Chelsea shirt, having been sent off in the Blues' 3-2 loss to Sunderland at the weekend. However, the former England skipper has revealed he hopes to continue playing for another "couple" of years and would like to extend his stay at Chelsea.
"I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that's at Chelsea," the Chelsea hero told the TV station of Danish side Brondby, the club owned by his close friend Jan Bech Andersen. "I'm a Chelsea player and that has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea."
Terry joined Chelsea as a schoolboy and has made 703 appearances for the west London club, winning four Premier League titles. But earlier this year, the Chelsea captain announced he had not been offered a new contract and was set to leave the club at the end of the current campaign.
Since then, Terry has been linked with money-spinning moves to China, the Middle East and America, where his former Chelsea teammates Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole are currently playing.
