The 34-year-old this season won his fourth Premier League title, playing every minute of the 38 games for Jose Mourinho's side.

His friend and former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard now moves to MLS with New York City, while Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is joining Los Angeles Galaxy, and Terry has not altogether ruled out a trans-Atlatic switch to the United States.

"I would love to finish my career at Chelsea and maybe there is a time when I look to go to play in America or whatever might be best for my family at the time," Terry told TalkSPORT.

"Hopefully I have a couple of years left at least. I always thought I could get to age of 35 and still (be) playing and I am getting close to that now."

Blatter, 79, is facing Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan in Friday's election at the FIFA Congress in Zurich, after former Portugal international Figo and Dutch FA president Michael van Praag pulled out of the race last week.

Figo said he was not prepared to stand until "it is proven to me that we are not living under a dictatorship", and that the election was about the "delivery of absolute power to one man".

Blatter, speaking in Zurich after arriving to address a meeting of associations from the Caribbean, central and north America, said:

"Luis Figo is free to say what he wants to say because he's free you can ask him why to be called (me) a dictator? I have received so many titles, but I am still the president until Friday."

Asked if he was confident of winning the election, Blatter added: "You know me, I'm an optimist so of course I'm confident."

European football returns to the London club for the first time since 2006-07 in the final season at their famous Upton Park home before they move to the Olympic Stadium in 2016-17.

"We want to ensure the Boleyn Ground the best send-off possible, and progress in this competition will certainly help with that," West Ham co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold said in a joint statement.

They conceded, though, that the prolonged Europa League qualification system, which begins with the first qualifying round on July 2, will "bring its challenges".

West Ham, without a manager after Sam Allardyce's exit on Sunday, will be among 104 teams entering the competition with three rounds to negotiate before August's playoff round.

England's other Europa League representatives are Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and either Aston Villa, if they win the FA Cup final against Arsenal, or Southampton.

Arsenal players star in 'Return of the Mack' parody

Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny are getting into the summer groove with this end-of-season parody version of Mark Morrison's Return of the Mac.

The Arsenal first team trio were on hand for club sponsors Citroen as part of their #ReturnoftheFan campaign, geared at thanking supporters for their backing during the 2014/15 season.

The video features all three players bobbing their heads and dancing along to the R&B classic in Arsenal's dressing room.

The Gooners will be hoping for much smoother rhythm during next weekend's FA Cup final at Wembley when they defend the trophy against Aston Villa.

Goals from Cameron Jerome and Nathan Redmond put the Canaries 2-0 up inside 15 minutes as Norwich returned to the top flight a year after relegation.

Martin told Norwich TV:

It feels amazing to have it (the trophy). The way we've done it is the ultimate and this tops everything for me at this football club since I've been here.

To lead a team out at Wembley and then to lead them up the steps to pick up the trophy, it's the proudest moment of my career and I don't think that will be topped.

It's special to go up the steps at Wembley, it's the stuff you dream of and fortunately I've been able to do that as captain.

You dream about stuff like that as a kid and just talking about it makes you feel a bit emotional seeing the yellow and green out there as you go up the steps - but to lift the trophy at Wembley, that was a cup final out there.

– Norwich captain Russell Martin
