Terry Ends Transfer Speculation

Labels: , ,

John Terry has finally spoken out about regarding the speculation surrounding a move to Manchester City and has committed himself to Chelsea. The following statement has been released on the official Chelsea website:

“I am totally committed to Chelsea and always have been. Chelsea have also made it clear to me consistently that there was never any intention to accept any kind of offer.

"When you are linked with any club, or with a manager who I have huge respect for, it will always make headlines but me leaving Chelsea was never a possibility.

"I know there has been comment that I should have made a statement earlier. However, throughout this period there have been numerous discussions between myself, the owner and the Chelsea board and we all agreed that the timing of the statement would suit everyone involved in those talks, not any outside influences or agendas.

"What is clear to me following those discussions is that Chelsea's ambition remains as high as ever. This has been further proved by the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti. I am certain that he will take this club on to the next level.

"Another important factor was knowing that Chelsea would be securing key current players for the long term. The strengthening of the squad around this core is crucial to pushing us onto greater success.

"I am as committed as ever to helping drive Chelsea forward and I will be proud to lead the team for as long as I can."

John Terry would have been an excellent signing for Manchester City, however it was not to be. Thankfully his commitment to Chelsea today will allow everyone concerned to move forward. City will now step up efforts to buy other defensive targets – this certainly isn’t the end of the project!
