Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is open to the idea of former captain John Terry.

It appears unlikely Terry will be returning to Stamford Bridge - for now.

No discussions have been held over the possibility of Terry returning "home" and it is Sarri's understanding, from speaking to the 37-year-old earlier this month, that the defender is keen to continue playing for another season.

Terry left Stamford Bridge after 22 years' service in June 2017, for a one-year contract with Aston Villa.

The former England captain rejected a move to Spartak Moscow this week, but he is a free agent and able to join any club outside of the transfer window.

"The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season," said Sarri, ahead of today's Premier League clash with Cardiff, when the Blues will be targeting a fifth win from five games.
