John Terry has admitted that he is yet to hold talks over a new contract with Chelsea but is confident that he will remain at Stamford Bridge.

The 34-year-old has been the constant figure in Jose Mourinho’s defence this season and was in good form against Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday night, a game which finished 1-1, leaving the English side with the advantage heading into the second leg.

The Blues captain current deal is due to expire in June and reports have claimed that he will follow the likes of Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole out of the club.

However, the former England international remains confident of a new deal.

“The club know my position, I know theirs and it will hopefully get done,” he told reporters after the PSG draw. “No talks have happened yet but we both respect the position. There are a lot of more important players than me – [Eden] Hazard’s one that’s just been done – and that’s the most important thing for the club.

“Without them even telling me that, I know that’s the priority for them and hopefully they’ll be knocking on the door soon. I want to stay. My performances are showing that and hopefully they can keep me.”
