Chelsea captain John Terry will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, the club has announced.

The 36-year-old centre-back has made 713 appearances for Chelsea since his debut in 1998, scoring 66 goals.

He has captained Chelsea 578 times - a club record - but has made just four Premier League starts this season.

"I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me," Terry said.

Terry is the club's most decorated individual, having won the Champions League, four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, the Europa League and three League Cups.

He is the club's third highest all-time appearance maker, behind Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti.

"I will, of course, always be a Blue and am desperate to end my final season as a Chelsea player with more silverware," said Terry, whose team have a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

"I've always been conscious that I depart at the right time, in the right way, and I feel that the end of this season is the right time for the club and I."
