Chelsea’s bitter rivals hint at shock John Terry move

Chelsea fans will be desperately sad that their captain is leaving, but they will be even more concerned about one of his potential destinations.

As well as West Brom, a move mooted mainly because people seem to like the idea of JT in a titanic Tony Pulis back line, West Ham have also been linked with the defender.

Terry started his career at West Ham as a schoolboy before moving to Stamford Bridge, and he was born in Barking, deep in Hammers territory.

Manager Slaven Bilic certainly added fuel to the fire by denying nothing about the rumour. In fact he all but confirmed that he would be interested in a move for the defender.

In quotes from the Evening Standard Bilic sang the Blues’ captain’s praises and refused to rule out a move for Terry.

“Every manager and club would think about him because there aren’t many leaders like him,” the Hammers boss said.

There’s nothing that could turn the Stamford Bridge faithful against their captain – but a move to West Ham might make them feel a little uncomfortable.
