John Terry is keen to open talks with Chelsea over a new contract with the Stamford Bridge club.
The captain, who has been with the Blues since he was 14, is out of contract at the end of the season, having penned a one-year extension last summer.
Despite turning 34 in December, Terry has continued to be a mainstay of Jose Mourinho’s side and is arguably been hitting his best form of recent years.
‘The club know my position, hopefully I know theirs and it will get done,’ he said on the Sky Sports website.
‘No talks have happened yet between myself and the club, but we both respect each other’s position. There are more important players here. Hazard’s one.
‘For me, [securing him to a new contract until 2020] was the most important for the club. Without anyone telling me that, I knew that was the first priority for them. Hopefully they’ll be knocking on the door soon.
‘I’ll be happy with one more year and then we’ll see how we go year by year. I’ve not got much choice. The first year [when his last long-term deal was running down] I was maybe a bit nervous and edgy and hoping and knocking on their door myself. But we had a good chat.
‘I know their position and they know mine. I want to stay and hopefully my performances are showing that and they want to keep me.’
