West Ham boss Bilic hints at John Terry interest

Chelsea came out and made an official announcement regarding Terry's future yesterday, confirming what we all basically knew already: Terry will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

He has made 713 appearances for the Blues so far but now he is being linked with moves to the MLS, while a Premier League switch is not out of the question.

"Whether that will be at West Ham or in the United States, I don't know".

Terry has not featured since a 2-0 FA Cup win over Wolves in February, with his last league appearance coming in November.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has refused to rule out a move for John Terry this summer. "I'm sure wherever John goes he will be a force within that side, there's no two ways about it". He was, and is, a legend, not just for his talent but just as much for his desire to get the best out of himself and others around him.

"I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me".

Former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson does not believe that Chelsea defender John Terry is good enough to warrant interest from the Gunners this summer.

He also won the Europa League under Rafael Benitez and lifted the Champions League trophy in 2012 despite being suspended for the final against Bayern Munich.

In announcing his decision to leave, Terry suggested he will one day return to Stamford Bridge.

"The club and I have always had a fantastic relationship, which will continue beyond my playing days", he added. We don't think about that right now. "Never say never, but to be fair I'm not thinking about that right now".

Harry Redknapp has previously suggested that Arsenal should make an audacious bid to sign the 36-year-old from their London rivals, but Robson believes that he will have to set his sights a little lower than the Emirates Stadium.

Long-time teammate Frank Lampard hailed Terry as the EPL's greatest defender. What a pleasure to play with the greatest defender in the @premierleague history.

But you simply won't come across a more lovely tribute than that paid by Terry's former Blues teammate Didier Drogba. He's one of the greats of the Premier League era and number one for me.
