Silly season is well under way now that Chelsea captain John Terry is rumoured to be attracting interest from West Ham this summer.
Terry is expected to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expires at the end of the season after 19 years and almost 500 senior appearances for the Blues.
The centre back started his youth career at London Sunday league side Senrab FC – where other renowned talents such as Sol Campbell, Bobby Zamora, Paul Konchesky and Ledley King also began their footballing careers.
Terry joined Tony Carr’s renowned West Ham academy back in 1991 and stayed for four years.
The 36-year-old was born locally in Barking but went on to have a highly negative relationship with West Ham fans, so it seems unlikely at first glance that the Hammers would ever make a move for the ex-England skipper.
However, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is reportedly keen to shore up his stuttering defence and if the last 12 months have proven anything, it’s that anything can happen.
Just maybe not John Terry in claret and blue.
