Yes, the move could actually be happening…
Blues boss Harry Redknapp has made a ‘good offer’ to the former England captain.
Terry is currently away with his family in Portugal, but Redknapp held a meeting with the defender’s representatives in London last night.
Here’s what Redknapp had to say this morning on Talk Sport:
“I’d love to have him at the football club.
“He’s a fantastic captain and great leader.
“We’ve made him a good offer and we have done the best we can. It’s up to John now, but we would love him at Birmingham.”
Terry made only nine appearances for Premier League champions Chelsea last season, but Redknapp insists the 36-year-old still has plenty to offer.
“He could play for anybody still. He has got a couple of good years in him,” Redknapp.
“He played for me the other week in Michael Carrick’s testimonial. Fergie had the 2008 Champions League-winning team, I had an All-Star team and I had John at the back with Jamie Carragher – I would have them two together all day long. They were fantastic.
“I had a chat with him and said to him to come in – he’s doing his coaching badges – have a year or two and who knows what he wants to do in the future?”
Aston Villa, Bournemouth and West Brom have all been linked with him, but it looks like Redknapp is winning the race.
This shows the intent from the club and if ‘Arry can pull this one off, he’d no doubt be more than a fan favourite.
Terry is definatley still head and shoulders above everyone else in the Championship in terms of quality and the prospect of having him, Shotton and Morro as a back three could well become reality…
What do you think Blues fans, worth the £100k-a-week wages?
