Harry Redknapp: Birmingham have made John Terry 'a good offer'

Harry Redknapp has made "a good offer" to John Terry in a bid to bring the former England captain to Birmingham.

Terry will be a free agent on July 1 after ending his 22-year association with Chelsea at the end of last season.

A host of Premier League clubs have been linked with the 36-year-old centre-half, but Blues boss Redknapp hopes to tempt him into the Championship.

"I'd love to have him at the football club," Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"He's a fantastic captain and great leader.

"We've made him a good offer and we have done the best we can. It's up to John now, but we would love him at Birmingham.

"He played for me the other week in Michael Carrick's testimonial. I had John at the back with Jamie Carragher and I would have them two together all day long. They were fantastic.

"I had a chat with him and said to him come in - he's doing his coaching badges - have a year or two and who knows what he wants to do in the future?"

Top-flight sides Bournemouth, Brighton and West Brom have all been linked with Terry, as well as Birmingham's rivals Aston Villa and clubs from the United States and China.

Terry has said he will make a decision on his future after taking a summer break to weigh up his options.
