John Terry will bring his 22-year association with Chelsea to a close this summer.
The centre-back has made just five league appearances since Antonio Conte took to the dugout at Stamford Bridge.
Of course, exactly the same announcement was made this time last year and he was subsequently rewarded with a new one-year deal, but it appears that the game is finally up for the England international.
That is not to say, however, that he will hang up his boots.
The 36-year-old is still in demand, with the Mirror reporting that West Brom lead the race for his signature.
Tony Pulis tried to convince him to move to the Hawthorns in January, but was unsuccessful. Joining the Baggies may be his best hope of Premier League football, as other offers on the table are understood to come from the MLS and the Chinese Super League.
Bournemouth are the only other English top flight being seriously linked with the Chelsea club captain, but Pulis has been actively pursuing Terry for some time.
