Interviewed by Sky Sports UK and asked about rumours linking former English international centre-back and Chelsea captain John Terry (36) to a West Ham move, Hammers manager Slaven Bilic, yet to be full-on confirmed for next season, stated: "He definitely has got at least a couple of years left with his quality, and experience, and leadership. Whether that will be with West Ham or elsewhere I don't know, we don't think about that right now, but I don't think it is the end of John Terry's career. He's going to do well. 

Every manager and club would think about John Terry if he's available, because there are not many leaders like him, but then again we have experience in that position, we have good players in that position, so never say never but to be fair I don't think about that right now.

He's on top Premier League's best ever defenders, together with Rio Ferdinand. John Terry is like a symbol. When we are talking about leadership, and talking about needing characters and leadership on the pitch, we are talking about them. We are talking about Gerrard, Lampard, Terry, Ferdinand, we are not talking about new guys. So John Terry is Mr Chelsea, he's done everything.

I never played against him, but I managed teams against him, against Chelsea, and maybe four times against England with Croatia. He was always like an anchor there, not only with his quality but his presence and everything. He was a natural leader".
