Terry turns down Spartak


John Terry has turned down a move to Russian side
Spartak Moscow for family reasons.
Sky in Italy reported last week that the former England and
Chelsea captain was in talks over a one-year deal, with the
option of an extra 12 months.
Terry – who has two children – underwent a medical in Rome
last weekend, but has now decided against moving to
In a statement on Instagram, he said: “After considerable
thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from
Spartak Moscow.
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and
wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the
season. They are an ambitious club and I have been very
impressed with their professionalism.
“But after assessing this move with my family, we’ve
decided this is not the right move for ourselves at this time.
Good luck Spartak.”
As a result, Terry remains a free agent after leaving Aston
Villa at the end of last season. The 37-year-old captained
the side to the Championship play-off final, where they
were beaten by Fulham.
In an interview with The Mail, he hinted he could return to
Villa Park, saying: “The manager, players and supporters
were incredible with me but I hate losing and I feel there is
unfinished business there.”
