Terry rubishes request claim

20 May 2007 - 14:09:28

Chelsea captain John Terry has branded rumours that he was ready to hand in a transfer request following the breakdown in negotiations over a new contract as 'ludicrous'.

The England skipper was rumoured to be considering his Stamford Bridge future in the build-up to Saturday's FA Cup final victory over Manchester United after discussions over a new long-term deal stalled.

But Terry has rubbished speculation that he was poised to stun the Blues' hierarchy by submitting 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."
