John Terry’s proposed new Aston Villa contract is the most John Terry thing ever

Blues icon insisted he would never want to play against former side — but could face conundrum with promotion success

Remember when John Terry organised for himself to be carried off in the 26th minute of his final Chelsea appearance?

Well the ex Blues captain is at it again.

Terry could sign a new Aston Villa contract which would allow him to MISS matches against Chelsea.

The Blues icon left Stamford Bridge after more than 20 years with the club, and insisted he did not want to face his former side.

He singed a one-year contract at Championship side Villa and, victory in the play-off final against Fulham on Saturday will see him face that dilemma should he choose to stay on.

However Steve Bruce insists he could sign an extension to his £80,000-a-week deal with a clause which would allow him to miss both league matches against Chelsea.

The former England captain, 37, is understood to be mulling over offers from the MLS and China, but his manager is willing to do whatever it takes to keep him.

Bruce explained: “I genuinely hope he triggers it [his contract extension].

“All those phone calls to him last summer, he hasn’t been disappointed with it. From the training ground, to the stadium, to the support, it has all the makings of a big club.

“He has been one of the great defenders of our country. He is a great leader of men, which we don’t produce many of any more.

“In a quiet way, he is not a ranter and a raver, he is not one who puts heads through doors. He hasn’t exceeded expectations, I just knew what he would give.

“I’m sure he will give it a good go if we get promoted and enjoy the challenge of it. We’ll not pick him against Chelsea if that’s he wants.”
