Why is John Terry being linked with Swansea?


Change is underway once again at the Liberty Stadium after Swansea sacked Bob Bradley just 85 days into his reign.

It’s less than three months since the Swans were last on the hunt for a new manager, but they are already looking for a new man in the hot seat after the American’s woeful attempts at keeping them out of the relegation zone.

Most of the talk has surrounded Premier League football’s unfortunate relationship – or lack of – with its transatlantic cousins, but while Bradley was the States’ first managerial representative in England’s top flight, he surely won’t be the last.

A far more pressing issue, however, is who takes over. Harry Redknapp has immediately thrown his hat into the ring, and they could do a lot worse than the survival specialist.

The Telegraph report that the former Spurs and Portsmouth boss is keen to sort out the defence immediately if he takes the job – hence why he has suggested John Terry as a possible January signing.

Of course, this would not be a particularly long-term solution to Swansea’s defensive problems, but given their position in the league, they don’t have the luxury of being too selective.

As for Terry, he is out of contract in the summer and the general consensus at Chelsea appears to be that he hasn’t done enough to be rewarded with another renewal.


There is a chance that the Premier League has not yet seen the last of the former England skipper, though, as he continues to flirt with a big-money move to China.

Shipping out Terry would allow Antonio Conte to sign a new defender, and that is thought to be his priority in the New Year.

Redknapp has also suggested that he’d like to bring in Frank Lampard, with the midfielder a free agent following his release from New York City.
