John Terry has committed his future to Aston Villa by signing a new contract at the club, keeping him at Villa Park until 2021.
Any speculation that Terry could leave to take up a first senior managerial role now appears to be over, Aston Villa confirming Terry has signed a new two-year deal to remain with the club.
The former England captain spent his final season as a player at the Midlands side, before taking up a role on the club’s coaching staff following his retirement in 2018.
Working alongside Dean Smith, Terry played an important role as Villa secured promotion this season, beating Lampard’s Derby side 2-1 in the Championship play-off final.
The 38-year-old holds ambitions of becoming a manager in his own right, but has opted to spend the next two years working with Smith as he continues to learn his trade.
The best right-back to never win the @premierleague ❓
