​Conte: Chelsea will not sell Terry during transfer window

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed Chelsea captain John Terry will not be leaving the club this month, reports the London Evening Standard.

The 36 year old, whose contract runs out at the end of the season, was linked with a loan move to Bournemouth earlier in the week.

Conte said: "I didn't know about Bournemouth interest for John. John is an important player for me and if he doesn't play, he is a really important man in the changing room. This squad needs him.

"His work on the pitch and in the changing room outside is fantastic. This shows he is a great player but also a great man.

"For me it is fantastic to have a person like him to help me in my first season in Chelsea. For this reason I repeat, John will stay with us in my squad.

"When I see a situation for him to start to play he will play, but he is a really important player for me."
