Chelsea captain John Terry has pleaded with the club to offer him a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
The 34-year-old is out on contract at the end of this season and has confirmed that talks have yet to take place with the club.
“The club know my position. I want to stay and hopefully my performances are showing that and so they will want to keep me,” he told the Sun.
“No talks have happened between myself and the club but we both respect the position and it will get done hopefully.
“I’ll be happy with one more year and then we’ll see how we go year by year — I’ve not got much choice!”
Chelsea currently have a policy of offering squad members over 30-years-old a one-year contract at a time.
The Blues recently let go two former greats and squad veterans without a second thought – both Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole exited Stamford Bridge last summer.
However, Terry says he is not nervous about his situation.
“That first year I was maybe a bit nervous and edgy and hoping and knocking myself. But we had a good chat and the club know my position, I know theirs,” he said.
Adding: “Yes, there are more important players. Hazard’s one. I knew that was the first priority for them.”
Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta, Oscar and Thibaut Courtois have all recently agreed new deals with the Premier League leaders and Terry will be hoping he’s the next.
Whilst Terry might be in his senior years, he showed his worth on Tuesday night with his cross leading to Chelsea’s opener against Paris Saint Germain.
