John Terry will leave Chelsea this summer when his contract expires

John Terry will wave goodbye to Stamford Bridge on Sunday following Chelsea’s Premier League season-ending match with Sunderland.

But what will be the Blues captain’s next move when his contract expires in the summer?

Here, we take a look at his most likely destinations, according to Sky Bet…

Bournemouth 7/4

Bournemouth were interested in signing Terry on a loan deal in January and could offer the centre-back a permanent move this summer.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe spoke of his admiration for the former England man earlier this season and in April, after backing Terry to continue at Premier League level, said “Age is not a barrier for me,” when asked about the 36-year-old.

Any Chinese club 4/1

Could Terry join the growing number of former Premier League players in making the move to China?

Chinese Super League clubs have spent large sums to attract big-name talent, including Terry’s former Chelsea team-mates Oscar, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, Alexandre Pato and Ricardo Carvalho.

Former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is at Guangzhou Evergrande, while Terry’s ex-England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson coaches Shenzhen FC. Perhaps they would be interested in reuniting with their former skipper.

West Brom 5/1

Tony Pulis has spoken openly about making an enquiry about Terry’s availability in January and then revealing he would be weighing up whether to make a move or not for the defender this summer.

Pulis is set to meet West Brom’s Chinese owners next week, where it is reported he will discuss the prospects of a move for Terry.

Any MLS club 5/1

Terry’s former England colleagues David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Ashley Cole and Jermain Defoe have all had stints in the MLS. Could he follow suit?

Terry reportedly attracted interest from LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls at the start of this season.

Whether those MLS clubs would be willing to follow up with an offer this summer remains to be seen.

Other contenders

Other clubs among the favourites with Sky Bet to land Terry’s signature include, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, Arsenal (11/1), Swansea (12/1) – where Terry would link up with former Chelsea coach Paul Clement – Brighton (14/1) and Portuguese giants Benfica (18/1).
