Former Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed he will leave Aston Villa following just one season at the club. The 37-year-old signed a one-year-deal last summer and “gave everything” to reach the promotion in the current campaign, as he wrote on Instagram tonight.

Terry made 35 appearances with the SkyBet Championship side before Saturday’s play-off final loss to Fulham. He said: “I will look back on my time here and think about how close we were to reaching our goal. I have given my everything this year both on and off the pitch”.

“I’m still hurting today that we never managed to get back to the Premier League, where this club 100% belongs. This club will always have a place in my heart”.

We wrote earlier last week that John Terry was expected to sign a new deal with Aston Villa despite failing to reach their main target of the season before something apparently went wrong.

Former Chelsea captain and club’s legend John Terry wants to sign a new deal with Aston Villa despite failing to get promotion to Premier League after 1-0 loss against Fulham in play-off final at Wembley.

It is understood 37-year-old would have extended his contract automatically if the Villains reached a promotion.

Terry, who’s been pictured in tears after failing to get a well-deserved promotion, featured 20 times this season scoring once against Middlesbrough earlier in October.

Chelsea legend John Terry reveals his future plans: last year the former Blues skipper claimed he joined Aston Villa, who are playing the Championship, because he couldn’t sign with any another Premier League side that wasn’t Chelsea.

But now it seems he changed his mind and he opens his door to other Premier League clubs:

“I hope this isn’t the end. If we go up, I’m staying. And hopefully I can play for a few more years in the Premier League.’

“It’s only fair that if we go up, which is the belief within the group, that I stick around. It’s in my contract when I hit a certain number of matches.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it here and love the way I’ve been accepted. I had to perform to get the approval of the fans and the group, and it was a big call by the manager, too, to sign someone at 36 years of age and coming to the end of their career.’

“The job isn’t done yet. We’ve got a few more games to go. But hopefully I am here next season.”

Gary Cahill has been officialy named new Chelsea captain by manager Antonio Conte.

Cahill already wore the armband many times last season and now, with Blues legend John Terry playing for Aston Villa, he has been awarded with the “job” permanently.

“I think that it’s right to continue with Cahill, if he plays, it’s right he’s the captain,” Conte said according to the Evening Standard – “Why? Because he stayed in Chelsea for many years and played a lot of games and showed good characteristics to be this.”

However, Gary Cahill will not be the only leader in Chelsea’s dressing room and on the pitch:  “I think also we can have other captains in our team, it could be Azpilicueta, David Luiz, and also, in the future, it could be Thibaut Courtois, Cesc Fabregas,” Conte continued – ” “I think every single player must improve in this [being big personalities in the dressing room] and understand [they have] to take more responsibility because we lost big players and we need now to find these new players to create this fundamental for Chelsea. It is very important for our future success to create this base”.

Blues legend and captain John Terry officialy joined Aston Villa yesterday after more than 20 years at Stamford Bridge.

Terry now believes Gary Cahill is his best successor to become Chelsea captain, after wearing the armband on many occasions last season.

“Gary has been brilliant as captain for Chelsea but the manager will decide,” – Terry told the Evening Standard – “However, it’s not just on the field that he has led the field brilliantly, but inside the dressing room as well. No one really gets to see that. He has been a man-mountain at times. The way in which he was speaking at half-time during some of the games, like in the FA Cup final against Arsenal, where he was leading the group, showed what a big character he is. If he gets the armband, he will fit it well.”

Chelsea legend John Terry left the Blues after 22 years among youth teams and first team: yesterday his signing for Aston Villa was announced, with the former Blues skipper admitting he didn’t want to join a Premier League side to not face Chelsea.

Now, Terry admits he would love to return at Stamford Bridge as a manager:

That’s a goal. Me and Lamps [Frank Lampard] have had those conversations. Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big. I’ve always wanted to be the very best and if that’s in management then Chelsea’s the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can’t go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job.

“You need to go and learn, whether that’s in the academy like Stevie [Gerrard] is doing. It’s difficult to get jobs. I see a lot of players from my generation not walking into jobs that maybe I thought they would get. So I think you need to go out and do your work and put your minutes in on the pitch and make your mistakes that no one sees so that when you do go in, you’re kind of ready.”

After officialy joining Aston Villa, Blues legend John Terry revealed one of the reasons why he signed for the Birmingham club and he decided to play in Championship next season.

And this reason, of course, is Chelsea: “It was the mental side of playing against Chelsea that was too much for me.” – Terry revealed – “The ideal situation is to get into the Premier League, that’s why I’m here and I believe we have the squad of players to do so. If they’re back in the Premier League this time next year I’ve done my job, and we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”
