London: Chelsea captain John Terry is to be awarded a contract extension to keep him at the club beyond the end of this season, manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Tuesday.
Terry`s current deal is due to expire at the end of the campaign, but Mourinho says the 34-year-old centre-back`s form this season has persuaded the club to offer him a new deal.
"What I can guarantee is he will be a Chelsea player next season," Mourinho told a press conference on Tuesday. "No doubts he`s going to get his contract."
Terry, a graduate of the Chelsea academy, was named man of the match after scoring the opening goal in his side`s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday`s League Cup final at Wembley.
