Central defender has been with the Blues since 1998.
Premier League giants Chelsea are set to offer veteran captain John Terry a new one-year deal to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of his current contract, which expires at the climax to this season, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The west Londoners now operate a club-wide policy whereby those players over the age of 30 will only be handed 12-month extensions to their current deals, as has been seen in the past with both of Terry’s compatriots at Stamford Bridge, left-back Ashley Cole and midfield player Frank Lampard.
And with Terry’s current contract set to expire on June 30 2014, the centre back has been waiting anxiously to discover whether the Blues would hand him a new deal to prolong his stay in the capital to a 15th year.
However, it is now understood that Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho has been so impressed with Terry’s displays at the heart of the club’s back four since the Portuguese returned for a second spell in charge of the Blues last summer, that the self-styled Special One will now recommend to owner Roman Abramovich that the skipper is rewarded for his rock-solid performances by being handed a new deal before the campaign draws to a close in May.
