John Terry: Has made just 12 league appearances for Chelsea this season

The 32-year-old, who has one year remaining on his current Blues contract, has been linked with a move away from the club.

The former England captain told the Evening Standard: "People have to realise that I've got a year left at Chelsea after this. People have spoken about no new contract and this kind of thing but it's not even on the agenda at the moment.

"They may sit down with me once the season has finished and we'll start talking then. Whether it's a yes or a no I'll continue to give my very best until my contract finishes."

Terry has suffered from a knee injury this season that has hampered his involvement with the first team.

He has also been used in rotation along with David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill by interim manager Rafa Benitez.

"I have had to focus, dig deep and do a lot of sessions on my own in the gym, which was tough and new to me because it's the first long injury that I've had," added Terry. "But I'm fit and I'm well now and that's the main thing.

"I will continue to do everything I can, whether I play or don't play, to move this football club in the direction that we want to be."

Terry made his professional debut at the club in 1998 and has gone on to claim 11 major honours.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
