Terry has made 713 appearances to date since making his debut in 1998 and revealed that he is leaving for more playing time elsewhere.

The former England skipper, 36, still wants to play but his game time at Stamford Bridge has been limited under Antonio Conte.

He has won four Premier League titles, one Champions League, five FA Cups, a Europa League and three League Cups with the Blues, and still wants to add to that total before the end of the season.

Chelsea take on Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday and are four points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

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

"I will, of course, always be a Blue and am desperate to end my final season as a Chelsea player with more silverware. 

"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.

"I'm eager to carry on playing and so will be looking to continue with a new challenge.

"Words cannot describe the love I have for our football club and our amazing Chelsea fans. You mean the world to me and I will never forget the incredible journey we've been on."
