West Brom given boost in John Terry chase

Chelsea announced on Monday that Terry, 36, will leave the club this summer following a 22-year spell at Stamford Bridge during which time he has won every major club honour.

"I don't think it is the end of John Terry's career".

Terry, however, has not played for Chelsea since their 2-0 FA Cup win over Wolves in February, with his last league appearance back in November.

Cole showed what Terry meant to him and Chelsea, writing: 'What you have achieved at one club is magnificent.

'So John Terry is Mr Chelsea, he's done everything. We had some really positive talks but with everything taken into careful consideration I have decided it's the right time for me to leave.

Terry has been a mainstay for Chelsea over the last 15 years, and he has won four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League whilst making 700 appearances for the Blues.

"The news of Terry leaving is incredibly odd timing, I don't get it at all", the former United defender told Monday Night Football.

'Proud to have been lead by the best defender of the Premier League and one of the very best in the world!

"John has got legendary status at Chelsea and quite rightly so, he's been an absolute star there and it will be chewing him up inside that he hasn't been able to play". I think he's still got so much to offer.

"I'm sure wherever John goes he will be a force within that side, there's no two ways about it".

Conte and Terry agreed that it would be wrong to extend the defender's contract as his playing opportunities will likely be even more restricted next season.

"I'm eager to carry on playing and so will be looking to continue with a new challenge", Terry added.

"The countless things I ve seen JT do to help people outside of the game, things that not many see, are what defines him as a man", he said. He has this burning desire to play football and it'll be chewing him up that he hasn't been able to put his boots on and perform.

Drogba, Chelsea's fourth highest goalscorer ever with 164 goals, wrote: "From day one you've been a true Leader, when I first met you and didn't know who you were but said to me "welcome to Chelsea".
