John Terry Set To Leave Chelsea At The End Of The Season
John Terry is set to leave Chelsea and move on according to Sky and BBC sources. The 35-year-old defender, who joined the club at the age of 14, has won four Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the Champions League with the Blues. He said: "Ideally, I would have loved to stay, but the club's moving in a different direction," he said. However, a club spokesman said later on Sunday that Terry could yet be offered a new deal. The thirty-five year old has played a massive 696 times for the club and hopes to continue his career,but not with another english club. He said: "I couldn't play for another Premier League club," said Terry. "It will be elsewhere for sure." He added: "I feel as though I'm in great nick, I'm playing great and I've got a couple of years to go." "The club will move on. No player is ever bigger than the club. No doubt they'll sign one or two great centre-backs."
