Premier League side Bournemouth is planning a loan swoop for Chelsea captain John Terry.
Bournemouth is planning to fill the void left by on-loan Chelsea defender Nathan Ake, who the Blues recalled back to Stamford Bridge after spending six month on loan at the Dean Court stadium.
Although it will be a great boost for Eddie Howe’s side to bring in the veteran defender, but the move is subject to acceptance from John Terry.
Terry has enjoyed his entire career with Chelsea. He joined the Blues from West Ham’s youth system when he was 14 and made his debut for Chelsea at age 17 in November 1998.
The only time he was out of Chelsea was when he went on loan to Nottingham Forest at age 19.
John Terry wants to be part of Chelsea till the end of the season and celebrate a fifth Premier League victory with the Blues if they eventually prevail come May.
Having been out of the first team for a huge part of the season under Conte, it is uncertain if he is considered to play an important role under current coach Antonio Conte.
Terry is currently serving suspension after his red card against Peterborough. The suspension stands after Chelsea’s appeal to overturn the red card failed.
Presently John Terry is not a popular option for Antonio Conte, as he appears to be behind in Antonio Conte’s first choice lately.
Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta, as well as Kurt Zouma and the returning Nathan Ake who has made ten league appearances this season compared to Terry’s five.
Terry may well consider the move in an attempt to breathe a new life back into his career just as Bournemouth have helped Jack Wilshere revive his career after joining Eddie Howe’s team from Arsenal.
A loan deal for John Terry may help prolong his stay in the top flight and may even lead to a new deal with Bournemouth after the loan deal expires.
