The veteran midfielder to be given a new deal but Cole and Terry won’t be so lucky.
There is news concerning the future of three England internationals at Chelsea who’s contracts all run out in the summer, with two of them set to be axed from the club, according to the Mirror.
Veterans Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and captain John Terry all have deals that expire this year and yet the midfielder is the only one who will be offered an extension.
Lampard is set to sign a new one-year contract that will see the Englishman play for the Blues until he is 36-years-old, before turning to coaching in 2015.
Both Cole and Terry are junior to the midfield ace with the defenders being 33-years-old and yet the west Londoners are ready to axe the Stamford Bridge stalwarts.
Manager Jose Mourinho is looking to the future for the team’s defence and has already secured the £12.5m signing of 19-year-old centre-back Kurt Zouma in the January transfer window.
Cole has fallen out of favour with the Portuguese coach and Mourinho has been playing Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back for most of the campaign
The skipper meanwhile has been reinstated back in the starting XI by the 51-year-old and has shown brilliant form, but the club are unwilling to meet Terry’s contract demands.
The former England captain wants a two-year extension, but as one of the side’s top earners this would prove to be an expensive outlay and 12 months is likely to be the longest offer.
With Turkish duo Fenerbahce and Galatasaray both interested in securing Terry’s services, the youth product may choose to play his final years in football abroad.
