Chelsea defender Gary Cahill says the players are delighted skipper John Terry is joining them on their US tour.

Cahill is looking forward to playing alongside John Terry again after the captain was given extra time off before flying to New York.

Cahill said: "He's huge for this football club. He's a huge player and it's good to have him back. We're gradually getting the squad back together.

"When you think of Chelsea, you think of John Terry. We're looking forward to getting him back and getting involved in the next three games."
