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.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
