- Story Text: Chelsea defender John Terry will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, the Premier League club said on Monday (April 17).
The 36-year-old former England international played over 700 games for Chelsea and has been their most successful captain.
"John has given us more than two decades of dedicated and exceptional service," Chelsea said in a statement.
"In that time he has displayed the utmost pride at wearing the Chelsea shirt."
In his time with the club, they won the Premier League title four times as well as the Champions League in 2012.
Terry is Chelsea's third highest all-time appearance-maker and has captained them a record 578 times.
