Chelsea captain Terry considers offering England resignation

Chelsea captain John Terry is considering offering his resignation as England captain to Fabio Capello.

The Daily Mail says Terry has been holding discussions with his advisers and giving serious thought to resigning the captaincy.

Informal talks have already taken place between Terry and a senior FA official - when Terry was advised not to rush into a decision.

While sources close to Terry would not comment on whether he would offer his resignation to Capello when the two meet, it is understood the England captain is being urged to consider the merits of at least being seen to do the right thing.

The Terry camp did, however, take some encouragement from an FA statement yesterday - in particular the suggestion that any decision would be made on "footballing grounds".
