John Terry’s move to Russian club Spartak Moscow has been called off by the former Chelsea captain.
John Terry had flown to Rome on Friday for a medical with the club ahead of finalising personal terms on a tax-free deal, believed to be in the region of £3million a year.
With the move off, a statement from Terry read: ‘After considerable thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season.
‘They are an ambitious club and I have been very impressed with their professionalism.
‘But after assessing this move with my family, we’ve decided this is not the right move for ourselves at this time. Good luck Spartak.’
Photos of the former England international undergoing the medical appeared on his Instagram account but the move is now off.
