Former Chelsea and England captain John Terry has declined a contract offer from Russian Premier League club Spartak Moscow.

Terry has been without a club since leaving Aston Villa at the end of last season, but he entered talks with Spartak over the past week. The 37-year-old flew to Rome for a medical on Friday and was offered a contract worth a reported £3million a year.

However, Terry posted a statement on his Instagram page to confirm he had decided against a move to the Russian capital after discussions with his family.
