Chelsea legend John Terry is available as a free agent after ending his 22-year association with Chelsea Football Club.

Premier League newcomers Brighton were among a number of top-flight clubs to show interest in signing Terry.

According to Evening Standard, Brighton have withdrawn their interest in Terry over his wage demands for £100,000 a week.

Stoke City, West Brom, Swansea and Bournemouth are the other Premier League sides interested in signing John Terry.

Following Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, Terry revealed he would decide his future when he returns from a week’s holiday.

Terry said: “Obviously, clubs are going to make decisions as well, so they are going to want to know.

“I will have a week off and then get back on it in the gym running, to be professional enough to be 100 per cent right for the club if I do decide that route or whatever I decide.

“I don’t think you can ever tarnish what I’ve done here [at Chelsea]. I think the fans, whatever I decide, will support me and accept my decision.

“They know when you have given everything for the club, if I decide to play, they will accept that decision and if I decide not to play, they will accept that too.”
