The former England skipper finished career with the Blues at the end of last season, having made 717 appearances in 19 seasons at the club.

John Terry has been offered a contract by Harry Redknapp's Birmingham City, report the BBC.

A leader like Terry could be just what Steve Bruce's men need in their quest to get back to English football's top tier after a year out of the Premier League.

Speaking with TalkSport, Redknapp confirmed that he and Birmingham had made an offer to Terry. The veteran defender is not expected to make a decision on his future until later this week at the earliest and is also considering an offer from Premier League Bournemouth, who are offering to pay him £100,000-a-week.

John Terry is now without a club after his 22-year stint with the Blues came to an end last season.

The Italian was controversially installed by the club's Chinese owners in December previous year replacing the sacked Gary Rowett, who had taken them to play-off contention, but the club went into freefall winning just twice in 22 matches and led to Zola resigning.

The 26-year-old Barnsley born centre-back is believed to have been on the Blues manager's radar for a number of weeks as recently reported by The72 and Redknapp could finally be set to move for the player in the coming days.
