John Terry is reportedly considering a switch to Bournemouth from boyhood club Chelsea, in what could turn out the most bizarre and shocking transfer story this January.

The Cherries made enquiries about taking the Chelsea skipper following Nathan Ake’s return to Stamford Bridge, and it appears they are set to get their wish of luring the Blues’ longest-serving player to the Vitality Stadium, the Daily Mail reports.

Terry, 36, was expected to reject a January move to ensure he has the opportunity to bid farewell to his boyhood club this summer.

However, he has now decided to meet Eddie Howe before the end of this week and the Bournemouth boss is confident he can persuade the former England skipper to sign, the report claims.

The former England captain has struggled to earn minutes on the pitch for the Premier League leaders, and it is believed this will be his last season at Stamford Bridge after nearly leaving at the end of last season when the club foot-dragged about handing him a contract extension.

He must now have been pushed further down the pecking order following the return of Ake, who had been on loan at Bournemouth. Howe wants to replace Ake with Terry, who is a natural replacement for Ake's left-sided centre back role.

However, even if the talks with Howe go well, it will not guarantee a move, as Terry may decide to remain at Stamford Bridge especially with a fifth Premier League title on the horizon,
