According to a UK Sun report, the defender was captured on camera in a Chelsea jersey, alongside the pair of ex-teammates Michael Essien and John Harley at the club's training ground.

On the other hand, the 39-year-old Harley is currently handling the club’s Under-16s while 35-year-old Essien is now a free agent following the termination of his last contract with Indonesian side Persib Bandung.

The ex-Ghana international was recently snubbed by Romanian club CFR Cluj on age grounds.

Interestingly, Terry has previously been spotted training at Cobham this summer.

Precisely in June, the former England star took to the social media to upload a video of a training session of he underwent with Chelsea women's ace Karen Carney alongside teenage starlet Ethan Ampadu.

The former Chelsea could have enjoyed his last training session before heading to Spartak Moscow.

During last campaign, Terry was at Championship side Aston Villa but after a decent season, they lost out to Fulham during a dramatic play-off final.

Already, Terry has been reportedly offered a £3m-a-year deal by Spartak Moscow, which is to run for 12-month but has an option of extension inserted into the contract.

However, Terry's switch to the Russian topflight will not guarantee him a place in the club’s campaign in the group stages of the Europa League.

According to Europe’s football arbiters, UEFA, the former Chelsea defence ace, will not be eligible to face Steven Gerrard's Rangers as the registration deadline day of September 3 has elapsed.

On the other hand, Terry could not link up with Portuguese top club, Sporting despite showing interest earlier on.

Terry hinted this week that he was on the radar of three clubs as he had remained club less since parting ways with Aston Villa since May.

The hard tackling defender remains keen to play for one club before switching to coaching.

At the last count, he has been working on his coaching badges with the managerial role at West London his preferred destination.

"It's true, I want to be the manager of Chelsea one day but that is a five to eight-year plan,” Terry was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that former Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed the sensational threat Jose Mourinho issued to him during a training session in his days at Stamford Bridge.

The former England international played under the Portuguese manager both times he was in charge of the Blues and the duo won three Premier League titles together.

And the 37-year-old has opened up on the time he was utterly embarrassed by his former coach following one of those successful league campaigns they were together.
