Swansea City have held discussions with Chelsea legend John Terry and retain their belief in being able to sign the ex-Blues skipper this summer, ahead of competition from Premier League rivals.
According to a report in the Mirror, also having manager Paul Clement at the Liberty Stadium is a boon in the pursuit of Terry as the pair forged a strong working relationship whilst at Stamford Bridge together.
The 36-year-old has a number of options regarding his footballing future after a memorable career with Chelsea. Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins still remains confident he will clinch Terry’s signature though as he looks to bring in quality players ahead of next season.
Jenkins said: “I know Paul has spoken to John and his agent. I don’t know what his preferences are because he has options and will go with what suits his family. We are well covered in that area and quite strong but I know there is interest with Paul and he spoke with John and his agent himself.
“When Paul knows a players well it is an obvious one for us. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but we will always try and do that.”
Terry’s wealth of experience gained at Chelsea will be invaluable for Swansea’s squad should a move to South Wales materialise. Aside from winning multiple Premier League titles, FA Cup’s and the Champions League with the Blues, the defender made over 700 appearances in the Premier League.
