Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho does not expect defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Centre-half Terry and left-back Cole, both 33, have just over one month remaining on their current contracts with the Blues.

Mourinho is keen for the England pair to stay, but he admits that the board will ultimately decide whether or not they are offered new deals.

When asked if Sunday’s end-of-season game at Cardiff City will be Terry and Cole’s last match for the club, Mourinho told BBC Sport: “I don’t know, but I don’t think so.

“I do my written reports to the board during the season and with the final report at the end where I try to have my point of view, analysing every aspect of the season.”

Aside from a six-game loan spell at Nottingham Forest in 2000, captain Terry has spent his entire club career at Chelsea.

The 78-time England international has made 421 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring 34 goals.

Cole, who has 107 senior caps to his name, joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal in August 2006 for a transfer fee of £5m plus William Gallas.

He has played 228 league games for his current club, scoring seven goals.

Terry has won three Premier League titles, five FA Cups, two League Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League with Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Cole has also won two major European trophies with the Blues, but during his time at Stamford Bridge he has only lifted the Premier League once.
