Maurizio Sarri would be happy to see John Terry return to Chelsea as part of his backroom staff at Stamford Bridge.

Terry is currently without a club having left Aston Villa at the end of the 2017-18 Championship campaign after Steve Bruce's side were beaten in the play-off final by Fulham in May.

A surprise move to Spartak Moscow looked on the cards last week, but Terry opted against the switch to Russia for family reasons.

Terry has already spoken to Sarri about a future role at Chelsea, but he remains intent on having one more year as a player before moving into coaching.

And whenever Terry decides to hang up his boots, Sarri says there will always be a place for him at Chelsea.

"The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season, but I don’t know the situation now," Sarri told a media conference.

"I am talking about a week ago, I don't know the situation. But Chelsea is his home, of course.

"Yes, of course [he would be welcome]. He would be a point of reference for me and everybody here.

"It's up to him, if he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play. If he wants to help us I am happy [for him to do so].

"Here is John Terry's home. I am very open with him because of his history with the club, he's won everything with the club so it's up to him."
