Terry pushing Chelsea for 3-year deal

John Terry is pushing for a new contract at Chelsea.

The Sun says he wants to use Jose Mourinho's Chelsea return to help him land a new three-year deal.

The Blues skipper has been encouraged by the Special One's comments about retaining the soul of the club.

He believes the time is right to start talks on a contract to keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2016.

Terry, 32, has 12 months left on his £160,000-a-week deal and has yet to open talks to reach a new agreement.

But he is likely to be frustrated in his hopes - even Mourinho's return is unlikely to reverse Chelsea's policy of offering only a 12-month deal to any player past his 30th birthday.
