Terry to get new Chelsea deal- Mourinho


TERRYLONDON, March 3- Chelsea captain John Terry is to be awarded a contract extension to keep him at the club beyond the end of this season, manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Tuesday.

Terry’s current deal is due to expire at the end of the campaign, but Mourinho says the 34-year-old centre-back’s form this season has persuaded the club to offer him a new deal.

“What I can guarantee is he will be a Chelsea player next season,” Mourinho told a press conference on Tuesday. “No doubts he’s going to get his contract.”

Terry, a graduate of the Chelsea academy, was named man of the match after scoring the opening goal in his side’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s League Cup final at Wembley.
