Chelsea skipper John Terry, who has found regular first team football increasingly tough to come by this season under Antonio Conte, could be set for a potential move away from Stamford Bridge. According to reports in The Telegraph, Premier League side Bournemouth are believed to be looking to land the legendary defender on loan this winter.
The Cherries have already lost Nathan Ake this winter, with the Blues having recalled him to the club. And it is expected that manager Eddie Howe may now try to provide Terry a way out of his misery and help his side in the process.
The 36 year old former England international faces the unlikely prospect of getting game time at Stamford Bridge this season, with the likes of Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma and Ake, all expected to be considered over him. And as a result of that, he may relish the prospect of moving to Dean Court, especially after seeing compatriot Jack Wilshere get his Premier League career back on track there.
Terry, however, may also wish to win another title with Chelsea before hanging up his boots, which may be the only potential incentive for him to remain at the club this season. Additionally, Conte himself may benefit from the presence of the vastly experienced player in his squad, especially at such a crucial time, which is why the boss himself may have reservations against the move.
