Chelsea ready to hand club legend another year

Chelsea are looking to reward John Terry with a 12-month contract extension after he revealed his desire to continue his career at the club, Evening Standard reports.

The 35-year-old was the hero for his side in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Everton at the weekend after cancelling out his own goal with a 98th minute equalizer.

Following the match, Terry admitted that he wanted to retire at Stamford Bridge, with interim manager Guus Hiddink also coming out to back his decision to do so.

It is likely that the Blues will give their star centre-back one more year in order to avoid seeing yet another experienced player leave.

Chelsea have gone through a slight exodus of legends the past few years, with the likes of Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, Petr Cech, and Didier Drogba recently departing, but the club are now expected to keep hold of their club captain.

Terry has started 17 out of a possible 22 Premier League matches this term, featuring in another four Champions League fixtures and has scored one goal.
