John Terry next club tips
FootyOn pick out John Terry next club tips, following his announcement to quit Chelsea after 22 years with the club.
“There will be opportunities for me to speak further about this over the coming weeks,” he said.
“I will decide on my future in due course but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season.”
Early reports have suggested that the former England captain would favour staying in the Premier League.
But no doubt teams from abroad will also look to snap the 36-year-old up for free in the summer.
So, read on for our John Terry next club tips…
West Bromwich Albion
Baggies boss Tony Pulis was the first to publicly state his interest in Terry this season, after reports he approached him in January.
Pulis said: “If he becomes available in the summer we’ll sit down then and have a little think about what we’ve got and what we haven’t got and then we’ll take it from there.”
As a result, West Brom are the early favourites to sign Terry, at a best priced 2/1 with BetVictor.
Next in the John Terry next club tips market is Bournemouth at 4/1 with BetVictor, who look set to stay in the Premier League for a second successive season.
What a coup it would be for Eddie Howe if he could sign someone of Terry’s experience and calibre to help further establish them as a top flight team.
But the club will have to be wary, of when another England defending icon Rio Ferdinand signed for QPR at the end of his career and was relegated with them.
Any MLS club
Could a trip to America appeal for Terry? He’s 5/1 to go there next with BetVictor.
Plenty of top names have done so over the years, usually towards the ends of their careers, and plenty from England too.
Fellow former England skippers David Beckham and Steven Gerrard, as well as ex-Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard have all starred in the MLS.
Any Chinese club
Or would Terry be tempted by the riches of China?
He’d become the first high profile English player to do so, or one of the first if Wayne Rooney doesn’t beat him to it.
This time, Paddy Power offer the best odds of 8/1 to play for a Chinese club next.
West Ham United
Finally, we’ve picked out West Ham as a possible destination.
It would mean Terry wouldn’t have to relocate his family, plus he would not be too unfamiliar with the club having played in their youth system for four years.
The ambitious Hammers will no doubt love to have Terry on their books again, and he’s 25/1 with BetVictor to do so.
If you don’t fancy any of the above, here are other clubs in the betting market.
Crystal Palace – 14/1 (Paddy Power)
Brighton and Hove Albion – 16/1 (BetVictor)
Newcastle United – 20/1 (Sky Bet)
