John Terry is confident of earning a new deal at Chelsea despite losing his first team place, according to the Mail Online.
The thirty-four year old was an unused substitute as the Blues secured only their second league win of the season – Saturday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal.
Terry’s replacement, Kurt Zouma bagged the opening goal of that victory and looks set to retain his place though the club captain is sure he can extend his Stamford Bridge stay for at least a further twelve months.
Aside from a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest fifteen years ago, the former England international has spent his entire career racking up six hundred and seventy six club appearances in all competitions, scoring sixty-two goals and winning a whole host of major honours.
He also won seventy-eight caps for England, scoring six times and played at both the 2006 and 2010 World Cup finals.
