Hiddink would give Terry new deal

Guus Hiddink has said that if it was up to him he would offer John Terry a new contract, according to the Independent.

The Blues captain went from zero to hero in Saturday’s thrilling 3-3 draw against Everton, scoring an own goal to give the Merseyside outfit the lead before hitting a last ditch equaliser eight minutes into stoppage time.

The thirty-five-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to be offered a new deal, and the Premier League champions have a policy of giving only one-year extensions to players over thirty.

Aside from a brief loan-spell with Nottingham Forest in 2000, Terry has spent his entire career at Stamford Bridge and his appearance at the weekend was his seven hundredth at club level.

That point at the weekend leaves Chelsea fourteen points behind fourth place Tottenham Hotspur ahead of Sunday’s trip to leaders Arsenal.
