The Daily Express claim that 34 year old is determined to win another deal having continued to be a hugely important member of Jose Mourinho’s first team set-up.
Terry has started all Chelsea’s 25 Premier League fixtures and has played a key role in the club’s push to secure a top tier title.
On the matter of a new deal Terry is quoted as stating;
“The club know my position,”
“Hopefully I know theirs and it will get done.
“No talks have happened yet, but we both respect each other’s position. There’s more important players to deal with first, like Eden Hazard’s (who signed a new five-year contract last week). For me, that was the most important for the club.
“Hopefully they’ll be knocking on my door soon.
“Last year, I was maybe a bit nervous and edgy and hoping, and knocking on the door myself.
“I want to stay and hopefully my performances are showing that – and they want to keep me.
“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.”
Terry is into his 17th season in the Chelsea first team set-up, making 653 appearances in the process, and a new deal is thought to be worth around £150k a week should the centre-back see his contract renewed.
