John Terry has revealed he remains hopeful he can extend his Chelsea career by another two years.
Terry looked certain to have played his last game for the Blues after his red card at Sunderland meant he would sit out the last two games of the season.
And without a new contract offer on the table it looked certain the 35-year-old club captain would be calling time on his 21-year spell at Stamford Bridge.
But despite money-spinning offers expected from China, Terry hopes he can agree a new deal under in-coming boss Antonio Conte.
He told Brondby TV: “I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that’s at Chelsea.
“I’m a Chelsea player and that has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea.”
Terry was in Denmark to watch Brondby, a team managed by his close friend Jan Bech Andersen
Discussing Andersen and Brondby, he said: “I knew about Brondby as a kid growing up, I used to watch all their big games.
“They were a huge club for me growing up and since meeting Jan a few years ago, we’re great family friends and Jan’s been inviting me over for the last couple of years.
“I’ve been promising him I’d come over and thankfully, with the schedules back in England, I’ve managed to come over today and watch the game, which I’m very excited about.
“It’s great to be here and to support Jan and the team today. “
