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.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
