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.
