John Terry insists his commitment to Chelsea has nothing to do with talks over a new contract.
"I let my football do the talking, I have got three years left on my current deal and from day one with Peter [Kenyon, chief executive] to Roman [Abramovich, owner] it has not been about a new deal," he explained to Sky Sports News.
"We have not spoken about any contract talks over the last month or five weeks. As I said I wanted reassurances about people like Ashley [Cole] - who was brilliant last year - him and Frank [Lampard] were our best players last year.
"He has two years left on his current deal and I want players like that around me, I want these players staying at Chelsea Football Club and I am sure the fans feel exactly the same, so people like Didier [Drogba], Ashley - [Florent] Malouda has just signed, John Obi Mikel, are close to signing new deals."
