Pulis confirms interest in Chelsea skipper Terry

John Terry could be thrown a Premier League lifeline by Tony Pulis after the West Brom boss confirmed he was keen to sign the defender ahead of next season.

The centre-back's contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the conclusion of the campaign and he is unlikely to be offered a new deal after losing his starting berth under Antonio Conte.

West Brom already made an enquiry over Terry's availability in January, but were told the 36-year-old was not interested in leaving Chelsea halfway through the season.

However, Pulis has made it clear West Brom are ready to give it another try come June.

"From what I could gather in January he wanted to stay with Chelsea and be part of going out as a champion," Pulis told reporters.

"If he becomes available in the summer we will sit down and have a little think about what we have got and what we have not got.

"And we will take it from there."

Terry has made just five Premier League appearances this term and has not featured in the English top flight since the 5-0 win over Everton back in November.
