Chelsea skipper John Terry has stated he is looking forward to staying on at the club.
The veteran defender already announced he’s set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, with the club saying they’re open to a renewal.
Terry has now further stated he’ll love to stay, but will leave if no new contract surfaces.
“I’m very hopeful,” he said. “I’ve been there 21 years and I’ll never kind of give up until it finally happens. But, who knows?
“I’ve still got a lot to give, whether that’s here [Chelsea] or somewhere else, for sure.”
Terry was also full of praise for interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, who has suffered just one loss in 15 games since replacing Jose Mourinho in December.
With that run, Chelsea have moved into 10th in the Premier League – just eight points off fourth spot.
“Guus has been phenomenal since he come in. Not only this time, but last time [in 2009] as well,” Terry said.
“We can only focus on that and what he’s doing at the moment. But he’s doing a fantastic job, as are the players at the moment.”
