fifa15fans | John Terry turns down move to Spartak Moscow

Chelsea legend John Terry has turned down the chance to join Spartak Moscow on a one-year contract after holding talks with the club and with his family.

Terry pulled out of a charity match he was scheduled to participate in on Saturday in order to fly to Rome to undergo a medical and finalise the details of the move to Russia, but has changed his mind.

In a statement posted on his official Instagram account, Terry cited his family as a significant factor in his final decision not to accept the move.

“After considerable thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow,” he wrote. “I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season.

After considerable thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season. They are an ambitious club and I have been very impressed with their professionalism. But after assessing this move with my family, we’ve decided this is not the right move for ourselves at this time. Good Luck Spartak
