Premier League duo Stoke City and West Bromwich had lodged respective offers for Chelsea defender John Terry during the winter transfer window.

The former England international had been the subject of bids from both the Potters and Baggies in January while Bournemouth were also keen on a loan deal.

Terry, however, opted to show his commitment to the Blues for the campaign despite having failed to feature in the league since September.

According to The Mail, the 36-year-old has set his sights on joining a domestic rival in the summer with the Blues unlikely to offer him a playing role.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has already admitted that he will move for Terry in the summer, and there could be further interest from a host of English clubs, who are all in need of defensive reinforcements.

Terry has spent his entire career with the west London giants, but it appears that he could take a similar route to Petr Cech and Frank Lampard and represent a fellow rival.
