Chelsea captain John Terry has been offered a one-year contract extension after all, the club have announced.
Terry is out of contract at the end of this season and in January said he would not be extending his stay.
The Blues insisted an offer may be forthcoming, and it arrived this week.
A Chelsea spokesperson said: “(Director) Marina Granovskaia and (chairman) Bruce Buck met with John and his agent this week and offered him a one-year contract extension.
“With it coming so late in the season, this is a big decision for John and his family and it is something that they are now considering.”
The 35-year-old defender has made 703 appearances since his debut in October 1998.
Chelsea, who can finish ninth at best, play Leicester, their successors as champions, on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, but Terry is suspended following his dismissal at Sunderland.
