The former England and Chelsea captain John Terry has signed for Championship club Aston Villa, the club’s owner confirmed on Monday via twitter
After spending 22 years at Chelsea, Terry left the Premier League champions (2016/2017) at the end of last season but was not ready to retire from the game.After interest from various clubs including Premier League sides Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City, Terry finally opted to join Steve’s Bruce’s side.
The decision ends Terry’s 19 consecutive seasons in the Premier League, all with Chelsea, and he will appear in England’s second flight for the first time since a six-game loan with Nottingham Forest in 2000.
