News has just broken that John Terry will be leaving Chelsea Football Club when his current one-year deal expires.

After making 713 appearances for Chelsea and scoring 66 goals Terry will be leaving the club.

Terry has captained Chelsea a club record 578 times and is the clubs most decorated player when it comes to silverware won.

Talking about his departure Terry is quoted as having remarked,

‘I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me.”

However, Terry intends to bow out in style by adding another Premier League winners medal to his collection, with the club captain further remarking,

‘I will, of course, always be a Blue and am desperate to end my final season as a Chelsea player with more silverware.

‘I’ve always been conscious that I depart at the right time, in the right way, and I feel that the end of this season is the right time for the club and I.’


As to where Terry might end up next, that`ll surely be the subject of further articles in the coming weeks.

  • This is a good thing. It would be nice if he’d take up the road to coaching – starting with the youth – preferably next season. But it’s understandable. JT seems to be going through that professional “mid-life crisis”, and I understand that he wants to keep going, somehow. Anyway, it’s a good time to bow out, and I’m glad that he’s doing it amicably. (or so it would seem, for now)

  • Sad really, i think we will miss him in the dressing room, but everything must come to an end . Total Chelsea Legend, this will be the end of an era, now please let him leave with one more league title .

  • Captain, leader and legend. lucky to have been captained by him for so long. wish him all the best and may he come back soon to coach our team. a big miss in the dressing room in my opinion. #KTBFFH

  • My grandson loves JT he will be devastated but I wish him well he’s been great for us I will miss him but that’s football all good things come to an end

  • JT is yesterdays man! keeping him around is a waste of a squad place. Great in his day which has now sadly passed
