Terry staying at Chelsea after City interest leaked

Chelsea captain John Terry has dismissed speculation over his future by declaring he remains committed to finishing his career at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea and Terry moved swiftly to reject the latest speculation linking him with a move to Manchester City in the summer - although the London club confirmed City made an enquiry late last year.

Media reports suggested that Terry was 'disillusioned' at the club and while the Blues recognised City had expressed interest, Chelsea made it plain they were not willing to sell.

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon said: "We made it very clear that John was not for sale. We did not entertain any further conversation on the subject and nor will we in the future. John is our captain and the captain of England. He is part of the heart and soul of Chelsea.''

Chelsea have been waiting to put an end to speculation over Terry's future for some time and decided to issue the statement after the latest media reports.

Terry had been kept fully informed of City's interest but the defender made it clear to the club at the time that he had no intention of moving on.

Now the England captain hopes his latest comments will end any notion of him leaving.

"Chelsea told me what had happened with the enquiry as a courtesy,'' said Terry. "I was very happy with their reaction as mine would have been the same.

"I have always said that I want to end my career at the club which I love and we all see no reason why that cannot happen.

"Given recent events I am more determined than ever to make Chelsea successful again.''

The club issued their latest accounts last Friday and recorded a loss of almost £66million. As a result players are likely to be sold to fund new additions to the squad in the summer.

However, Chelsea are adamant that whatever the financial situation at Stamford Bridge, Terry is not for sale at any price.

The defender was suspended for yesterday's 3-1 victory over Watford in the fifth round of the FA Cup but is set to return for interim coach Guus Hiddink's first game in charge at Aston Villa next weekend.

Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins believes Guus Hiddink will stay on as the Stamford Bridge boss after the summer - and insists captain John Terry is going nowhere.

Wilkins, who picked the team that beat Watford in the FA Cup fifth round, feels Hiddink will love the Premier League and eventually want to remain in his role.

Hiddink has a short-term contract until the end of the season, and will continue as Russia boss in the meantime.

Wilkins said on BBC Five Live's Sportsweek: "I would have thought that there will be a large body of people who will want Guus to stay if he does well from now until the end of the season.

"He has come in with a fresh attitude and wants the players to work extremely hard. I would agree that Guus would want to stay once he has sampled the Premier League.

"Any manager coming into our league, if he is half successful, would want to stay involved. The crowds are fantastic. That's week in, week out. Foreign managers really enjoy the pace and atmosphere.''

Wilkins believes former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will one day return to the Premier League - but not necessarily at Chelsea.

"Football is a strange game. I would love to see Jose back in the Premier League, whether it was with Chelsea I have no idea,'' Wilkins said. "He is a fantastic character and he would be good for the Premier League.''
