Chelsea captain John Terry has agreed a new one-year contract with the club.

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Terry said: ‘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.

‘Also, a special mention to the fans for their continued support. You’re the best in the world’.

The new deal will lead to Terry entering his 22nd season with the Blues, and will allow him to add to the impressive 703 first-team appearances he has made. That makes Terry the third-highest in the history of the Stamford Bridge club, behind only Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti, with a club-record 570 of those matches as captain.

The decision was made following dialogue between the club, Terry, and incoming manager Antonio Conte. Terry had said on his Instagram page that the new deal offered to him by Chelsea was in a ‘different role’ and that he would have to consider his options, but it appears that Chelsea’s Captain, Leader, Legend will be leading the Blues out for at least another season.
