Former England and Chelsea captain John Terry was a surprise onlooker at Marseille's pre-season training camp on Tuesday.

The Ligue 1 outfit are preparing for the new campaign and were taking part in a session in Portugal after drawing 1-1 with Sporting Lisbon over the weekend.

Terry, 37, is a free agent having left Aston Villa at the end of last season and is believed to have taken in a visit to Marseille's training session while on holiday with his family.

The five-time Premier League winner spent one season at Villa Park but could not help Steve Bruce's side gain promotion back to the top-flight before departing.

John Terry could move to China this summer, according to his former Chelsea team-mate Gus Poyet who is now manager of Shanghai Shenhua.

Terry will be leaving Chelsea this summer after 22 years at Stamford Bridge and is available on a free transfer.

And having won 14 major trophies at Chelsea, Terry could finish the season lifting more silverware, with the Blues also in the May 27 FA Cup final against Arsenal.

He has been linked with numerous Premier League clubs, plus moves to Major League Soccer, the Middle East and the Chinese Super League, where recent transfer restrictions may not apply to Terry, Poyet says.

It is a great opportunity for him and for all the teams here (in China), including us.

The latest change of the quantity of foreigners on the pitch stops some clubs from bringing in defenders, but we are talking about a special one.

It is a great possibility that China will be one of the possible situations for John Terry in the future.

It is a very difficult decision whether to stay in England or go abroad.

I would like him not to play in the Premier League for another club - maybe I'm a little bit selfish.
