Bournemouth reaped the benefits of a Chelsea loan with outstanding young talent Nathan Ake, and now they are looking to London for the other end of the experience spectrum.

Sky Sports is reporting that Eddie Howe‘s Cherries have made enquiries to the availability of 36-year-old defender John Terry for a half-season loan.

Terry has been with Chelsea since 1995, when he joined from West Ham at the age of 15. Aside from a six-game loan at Nottingham Forest in 2000, all of his appearances have been with the Blues.

As good as Terry has been in the past, it’s a bit baffling if they are willing to guarantee him time. Howe deserves the benefit of the doubt, though.
