John Terry eyeing China move

John Terry news

Terry could join the Chinese Super League in the summer

Chelsea skipper John Terry is prepared to test himself in a new league following his struggles to earn regular first-team football this season.

The former England international has barely featured for Antonio Conte's side since the switch to a 3-4-3 formation earlier in October.

According to The London Evening Standard, the veteran centre-half is keen on prolonging his career for a couple more seasons, and this could see him move for the Far East next summer.

Shanghai SIPG are currently the leading candidates for his signature with former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas keen on adding an experienced player to his backline.

Terry, 35, has spent his entire professional career with Chelsea, but the lack of first-team action has urged him to consider a switch to a foreign league.
