Chelsea captain John Terry has sign a new one year contract at the club to keep him till 2017.
John Terry was told earlier in the season that his contract would not be renewed and seemed to have played his last game for Chelsea after receiving a red card in the last minute against Sunderland.
The 35-year-old defender has made 703 appearances since his debut in October 1998, but was suspended for the season concluding 1-1 draw with Premier League champions Leicester.
Terry’s current contract was set to expire on 30 June, but an agreement has now been reached for him to stay on at Stamford Bridge under new manager Antonio Conte next season.“I am delighted to sign a new contract with the club. Everyone knows I’m Chelsea through and through. I am looking forward to next season under the new manager and hopefully we can make it a successful one,” Terry said, quoted on the club’s official website.“Also, a special mention to the fans for their continued support. You’re the best in the world.”
Director Marina Granovskaia added: “We look forward to another year with John at the club, and believe he will be an important figure in the dressing room and on the pitch as we look to bring success back to the club next season.”
Terry had publicly come out to state his desire to remain at the club he has been since the age of fourteen and rejected several offers that would have fetched him millions just to remain at his boyhood club.
