Guus Hiddink doesn’t know if John Terry will remain with Chelsea beyond the end of the season but he hopes the defender stays.
Terry, 35, is suspended for the rest of the campaign and there is a chance he will not play for the Blues again as his current deal expires in the summer.
Talks were held between the club and Terry’s representatives on Wednesday but interim boss Hiddink doesn’t know whether a deal can be reached, although he is hopeful the former England captain will agree fresh terms.
“Let’s wait to see what happens in the upcoming days on this issue,” said the Dutchman, who will be replaced by current Italy boss Antonio Conte after Euro 2016.
“Of course John is in contact every day with us and he has made such a long career that the fans appreciate him highly. We will see regarding his near future, let’s wait a bit.
“Hopefully both are wise parties and let’s hope for the best. It is difficult to see which direction it is going.”
