John Terry pledges future to Chelsea

Table of Contents
Chelsea captain John Terry has put an end to speculation that he might be tempted by a big-money move to Manchester City by committing his future to the London club.

Speculation has mounted for weeks that the England skipper might leave the Blues, fueled in part by Terry's decision to stay silent until now.

But the 28-year-old has now revealed that he was never even considering quitting Stamford Bridge despite City had offered him a staggering £250,000 a week.

"It's a nothing from day one," JT told Sky Sports News.

"I got a phone call from (chief executive) Peter Kenyon when I was on holiday telling me about the offer from Man City and the club said they didn't want to sell me and from then on it was never an issue for me to leave Chelsea Football Club.

"I am very flattered and honoured by the bid Man City put in for me. I have huge respect for Mark Hughes and people around Man City, but at the same time I have been at Chelsea for 14 years now and I aim to spend the rest of my career with them.

"I just wanted reassurances that key players around me like Ashley Cole and Didier Drogba, who are in contract talks at the moment, are going to be staying and that was a key factor for me. So I am pleased about these players and the ambition at the club is in the right direction and where I want to be."

Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti added: "For sure I am happy, not only me is happy but all the club and the fans.

"It is very important but I was sure as I know John Terry - he is very professional and his leadership within the club, and I said to him to have trust in me."
