According to the latest transfer news from English media, Chelsea iconic captain John Terry is linked with a shock transfer move to AFC Bournemouth.
The former England international has made just his ninth appearance of the season last Sunday, but has put further chances in doubt by receiving a red card in the FA Cup third round match versus Peterbrough.
As a result, the reports from Daily Telegraph claim that Bournemouth are showing a strong interest in taking the veteran superstar on loan for the rest of the current campaign.
The decision of Chelsea to recall Nathan Ake from his loan spell has had a double effect on the possibility of this move, both leaving John Terry with more competition for a place at Chelsea and Eddie Howe a defender short on the south coast.
A loan move could make sense for both clubs, although it may also mean the end of the Englishman’s career with the west London club.
The 36-year-old former England international has made 711 apps for the Stamford Bridge club since making his debut back in 1998.
The Blues are unlikely to offer him another contract deal with his first team role becoming smaller by the day, but could attempt to keep the club legend on as a coach.
