Bournemouth leading Terry chase

Bournemouth have emerged as favourites to sign Chelsea captain John Terry at the end of the season, according to the Mirror.

The former England skipper announced on Monday that he would be leaving Stamford Bridge in the summer after over two decades with the Blues.

West Bromwich Albion, who moved to sign the thirty-six year old in January, West Ham United and Swansea City are all also monitoring the situation with the centre-back keen to keep playing at the top level.

In a glittering career, Terry has made over seven hundred appearances for Chelsea winning fourteen major honours – all but one as club captain.

In 2000, he had a brief loan spell with Nottingham Forest where he played six times with Marcel Desailly, Frank Lebouef and Emerson Thome ahead of him in the pecking order at his parent club.

Terry will be keen to add a fifth Premier League winners medal to his haul next month, and the bookmakers have Antonio Conte’s men at 1/7 favourites to finish in first place.
