Chelsea captain John Terry could stay at the club after his contract expires in the summer, says boss Guus Hiddink.
Terry, 35, said on Sunday that he had not been offered a new deal at Stamford Bridge and he was ready to move abroad.
However Hiddink said Chelsea are still keen to discuss a possible contract extension with the centre-back.
"The club want to have dialogue, there are open doors. There was no specific decision, the door is not shut, " said the interim manager.
Terry has ruled out joining another English team and the possibility of playing against the club he joined when he was 14.
Since suggesting that he would be leaving Chelsea, Terry has been linked with moves to Qatar side Al Arabi - managed by Gianfranco Zola - Major League Soccer in the United States. and the Chinese Super League.
Terry told the Daily Mail in December that he was not ready to retire from playing and would consider a move to the United States, but Hiddink says there is no sign of age catching up with him.
