Cape Town - Chelsea skipper John Terry revealed that the club has not yet offered him a new deal despite his contract expiring at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old defender is hopeful that the club will approach him over a new deal shortly.

"The club know my position," Terry is quoted as saying by The Daily Star.

"Hopefully I know theirs and it will get done.

"No talks have happened yet, but we both respect each other's position.

"Last year, I was maybe a bit nervous and edgy and hoping, and knocking on the door myself.

Terry confirmed his desire to stay at the club and insists that a player of his age cannot demand more than a rolling one year deal.

The former England star would expect to earn a weekly wage of around £150 000.

Terry also said that his focus is staying fit and playing as much football as he can as he knows that he is in the twilight of his career.

Terry, who made over 75 appearances for England, made his Chelsea debut in 1998 during a League Cup fixture against Aston Villa.

The tough-tackling defender has made over 650 appearances in all competitions for the club and is the third-highest appearance maker in the club's history. 

Terry has won three Premier League titles, the Champions League, four FA Cups and two League Cups.
