The Irishman spent six years on the books at Stamford Bridge between 2007 and 2013, although he never made a competitive first team appearance before leaving permanently for Leicester.

And during meal times, Clifford made a surprising discovery about club captain Terry.
“John Terry was the main man there,” Clifford told Irish broadcaster RTE.
“Even down to eating his lunch he would have a brand new knife and fork brought over to him every day.
“He was the king of the place.”
Conor Clifford eventually left Chelsea and went on to sign for Leicester, Southend and Boreham Wood

No new contract beyond this summer is forthcoming, meaning his Chelsea career could be coming to an end, but a fifth Premier League title is in sight for the Blues icon.
