Chelsea skipper Terry: I would never hand in a transfer request

He said: “That’s ludicrous. I would never do that.

“Now the season is over for Chelsea, I’d like to think things are going to get sorted out and I’m hopeful we will be in talks.

“I didn’t want to be in talks in the build-up to the FA Cup final and the build-up to what could have been us possibly retaining the Premiership.

“I told Chelsea to wait and we would go again in the summer. It was not right to go into important games with things on your mind and being unhappy.

“Hopefully it will be resolved as soon as possible really.”
