EPL By: Collins Udeme | 18/05/2017
Swansea City manager Paul Clement says he will have "a conversation" with Chelsea captain John Terry about the possibility of reuniting the Blues legend with his former team-mate Claude Makelele who is now an assistant coach at the Liberty stadium.The former England skipper will leave the Premier League champions at the end of the season. Terry captained Chelsea to an FA Cup and Premier League Double in Clement's first season as assistant to then manager Carlo Ancelotti in 2008-09."I don't know his thinking, whether he is going to carry on. I will have a conversation with him. I've known him a long time." "There's been talk in the media it could be his last game or that he will go on. Whether that is here in the Premier League, or whether that is abroad, that is all unsure at the moment." said Clement said on BBC SportsSwansea's Premier League rivals Bournemouth are also reported to be interested in signing Terry, should he carry on playing.
Meanwhile, Makelele is to become a permanent part of Swansea's coaching staff. The 44-year-old, brought in until the end of the season following Clement's appointment in January, is now set to sign a long-term deal.Terry made his senior debut for Chelsea in 1998, and Sunday's home Premier League game against Sunderland could be his final appearance for the club.
