Bournemouth to en­tice Terry with two-year con­tract

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Bournemouth are pre­pared to of­fer John Terry a twoyear con­tract to en­sure he con­tin­ues play­ing next sea­son.

The 36-year-old made the sur­pris­ing ad­mis­sion on Mon­day that he was con­sid­er­ing re­tir­ing af­ter Chelsea’s FA Cup fi­nal against Arse­nal on May 27, par­tic­u­larly given he vowed to play on in an­nounc­ing his de­ci­sion to leave Stam­ford Bridge at the end of the sea­son.

How­ever, it is un­der­stood Terry is al­most cer­tain to con­tinue play­ing next sea­son and prefers a move to a ri­val Premier League club.

As re­vealed last month, Bournemouth are the front run­ners for his sig­na­ture.

Due to his age, Terry has been sign­ing 12-month ex­ten­sions at Chelsea in re­cent sea­sons, but the Cher­ries are ready to of­fer the de­fender the se­cu­rity of a two-year deal to pull off a suc­cess­ful coup.

The fact Terry will be avail­able on a free trans­fer means Bournemouth will be able to of­fer the Chelsea leg­end an at­trac­tive pay-deal with a sub­stan­tial sign­ing-on fee.

A move to the south coast would mean min­i­mum up­heaval for Terry’s fam­ily, a con­sid­er­a­tion that will be key when it comes to the de­fender mak­ing his fi­nal de­ci­sion. Daily Mail
