REPORT: John Terry close to penning a new deal?
Chelsea captain John Terry who is having an incredible season for the club in the premier league by starting every single match in the league, is reportedly close to signing a new 1 year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer. The legend’s 150,000 pound per-week contract signed 5 years ago comes to an end this summer.
