John Terry’s next move
On Easter Monday, Chelsea released a joint statement with John Terry announcing his departure from the club at the end of the season.
There have already been questions asked about the timing of the announcement, coming just after the defeat at Manchester United and ahead of the crucial FA Cup semi-final with Spurs this week.
One crucial fact was left out of the joint Chelsea-John Terry announcement – where the 36-year-old will be next season.
The early reports suggested that Terry could join West Brom when he calls time on his Stamford Bridge career, but that now seems to be unlikely.
Where does he want to live?
According to the Times on Wednesday, Terry has no intention of moving far after he stops playing for Chelsea. The broadsheet reports:
John Terry is seeking a contract at a new club that would enable him to remain living in Surrey when he ends his 22-year association with Chelsea at the end of the season.
His desire to stay in Oxshott would appear to put Bournemouth and Crystal Palace ahead of West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City in the chase for his signature.
Were he to join Palace, Terry would likely replace Mamadou Sakho in the Eagles squad next season.

Along with reports on which clubs Terry could join this summer, the defender has updated his social media account on Wednesday morning too.
