West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis has indicated the club may try to sign John Terry in the summer, having made an enquiry about the Chelsea captain in January.

Terry has played only once in the Premier League for leaders Chelsea since September and his current deal with them expires after the season finishes.

On Friday The Times reported the 36-year-old defender will consider joining another English top-flight side over the summer and that he received an offer to move to Albion in January, with Stoke and Bournemouth also said to have shown interest.

When asked about the link with Terry at his Friday press conference to preview West Brom's league trip to Everton, Pulis said: "I've always thought he was a good player.

"It was just finding out what the situation was and then it was whether we moved on it or we didn't.

"There was more than one player we enquired about in January. You've mentioned John, but there was most probably three or four others of that ilk that we were enquiring about - and I think enquiry is the word.

"There was no approach made, it was just finding out what the situation was, and the situation was that John wanted to stay at Chelsea.

"I think he wanted to be there and stay there and be part of going out as a champion.

"If he becomes available in the summer we'll sit down then and have a little think about what we've got and what we haven't got and then we'll take it from there."
