John Terry’s future is still unclear having ended his 22-year spell at Chelsea.
The former Blues captain signed off his Stamford Bridge career in a controversial fashion, agreeing with Antonio Conte that he would be symbolically substituted in the 26th minute of the final game of the season against Sunderland.
It seems likely the centre-back will continue playing, and Harry Redknapp has confirmed that a switch to Birmingham is an option after the Championship club made him an offer.
The City boss told talkSPORT:
“He’s a fantastic captain and a great leader.
“We’ve made him a good offer and we have done the best we can. It’s up to John now, but we would love him at Birmingham.”
The prospect of joining a team who narrowly avoided relegation and finished 19th would, on the surface, surely not be particularly appealing for a man who has won five Premier League titles and a Champions League.
However, Birmingham’s woes stem largely from the ill-fated managerial stint of Gianfranco Zola. The Redknapp revolution is supposed to represent a new phase for the club.
It’s certainly a huge statement of intent that they have spoken to JT, though it remains to be seen whether they can pull off what would be one of the summer’s more extraordinary transfers.
