Terry keen to sign a new deal and stay in west London until he retires.
After a brilliant season for Chelsea, captain John Terry is hoping to sign a new contract with the club and end his career at Stamford Bridge.
Terry’s current deal expires at the end of the season and as yet no extension has been agreed with the 33-year-old, despite the fact he has been in such fine form.
The Englishman has played a key role during manager Jose Mourinho’s first year back in the Premier League and has featured in all but four of their league and Champions League fixtures in 2013/14.
In that time Terry has helped the west Londoners keep the best defensive record in the English top tier and is considered to be among the finest defenders in the division.
Now the centre-back wants to sign a new contract with his boyhood side and stay with them for the rest of his career.
“Clearly, I want to stay for the rest of my footballing days,” Terry was quoted by Sky Sports.
“At the minute we’re in talks and it’s ongoing. I’m hoping it gets done. It’s down to the club. They know I want to stay.”
Terry is the only member of Mourinho’s current squad that is a product of the youth academy at the Bridge and first broke into the senior team back in 1998.
Since then the former England skipper has played 597 times for the club in all competitions, winning three league titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League.
