Soccer – Chelsea hint at new Terry talks


Chelsea insist contract talks are still ongoing with John Terry even though the club captain has hinted that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of this season.

The 35-year-old has spent his entire career with Chelsea and has featured in almost 700 games for the club in all competitions, winning 14 major trophies, including four Premier League titles and the Champions League.
The defender has said that he wants to continue playing football, although not in England.
Terry said: “Ideally I would have loved to stay, but the club’s moving in a different direction. I couldn’t play for another Premier League club. It will be elsewhere for sure.”
However, a club spokesman responded to Terry’s comments by saying: “He is a fantastic servant of Chelsea and a superb captain. As such, the club will keep the channels of dialogue open.”
After beating MK Dons 5-1 on Sunday in the FA Cup, Chelsea are 11/2 with Bet365 to win the competition outright. They visit Watford in the Premier League on Wednesday and are 8/1 to beat the Hornets 2-0.
