John Terry heading to Russia?
By Harry Morgan
John Terry’s spell at Aston Villa may be over as reports suggest the Chelsea legend and former captain has had medicals at a Russian club.
The 37-year-old signed for the Championship side last season but has not extended his contract after the Villans failed to earn promotion into the Premier League.
Terry gave a hint he may return to the club when he said in an interview he has an ‘unfinished business’ at the Birmingham-based club.
But, it looks like Terry is heading for Moscow as reports are ripe, he has completed medicals at an undisclosed club.
“I loved my time at Aston Villa. I am still devastated that we didn’t go up. The manager, players, and supporters were incredible to me, but I hate losing and I feel there is unfinished business there,” Terry said.
Terry has revealed before he has teams pursuing him in England and abroad, aside from having media houses chasing him with offers to become a pundit.
He said: “I’ll decide in a couple of weeks. I’ve got three or four offers on the table to carry on playing, domestically or abroad, the chance to work in TV, or I will go into management."
“Steve Bruce is a great man and with the backing of the new owners, Steve will hopefully get the club back into the Premier League.
“Don’t get me wrong, if I don’t play again, I am content with what has been an unbelievable career, but I’m still hungry to go and play if everything around it is right. If it’s right for me and my family."
