Chelsea captain John Terry has snubbed interest from abroad and signed a new one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge, according to reports today.

Terry’s current deal was due to expire next month and so far talks over a new deal have been stalling with the centre-back understood to be initially demanding a longer-term deal than Chelsea were willing to offer.

The deadlock led to speculation Terry might be set to call-time his illustrious career in West London, with a number of European clubs understood to be willing to offer him a fresh start.

However, the Mirror are one of several outlets who are claiming that the 33-year-old has snubbed interest from abroad and has now signed a new one-year extension, with the deal believed to have made Terry the highest paid defender in the Premier League.

Terry has been a rock at the back for Chelsea once again this season and although the Blues ended the season trophy-less following their exit in the semi-finals of the Champions League and finishing third in the Premier League, the defender still played a key role in marshalling the tightest defence in the division.

The veteran has been at Chelsea his entire professional career having joined the club as a teenager back in 1995. He’s gone on to make over 600 appearances during his 16 years at the Bridge and has led the club to a number of honours including 3 Premier League’s, 1 Champions League and 5 FA Cups.
