According to the source, the central defender has an offer from Aston Villa, which guarantees an annual salary of £4 millions. However, the 36-year-old will still think on it, as he waits for an offer from an EPL side.
The assumptions for his desire of career continuation is also backed by the fact that he has been still training in Chelsea base, in the attempt of staying fit ahead of the new season. His contract with the Blues expires on June 30, after which he would not be able to train at their training base.
Except Aston Villa, Birmingham are also interested in the Englishman’s services. EPL sides West Bromwich and Swansea City are among his potential future clubs.
