“After 22 years there is so much to say and so many people to thank at this great football club," Terry told chelseafc.com. "From coaches, team-mates and staff to the fans who have given me so much support down the years, I can’t thank you enough.
“I will decide on my future in due course, but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season.”

Terry has made only five appearances this season under Antonio Conte as he and Chelsea chase a fifth Premier League title.
“He has been an outstanding player, inspirational captain and has always demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the cause,” Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said of Terry.
“In that time, Chelsea has grown into one of the world’s top clubs and it is only right that John’s contribution is recognised. He will always be held in the highest regard by everybody at Stamford Bridge and we look forward to welcoming him back in the future.”
