Championship side Aston Villa  have announced the signing of Chelsea legend and former England captain John Terry on a one year deal.

The announcement was made known by the club’s owner, Dr Tony Xia, on social media.

The 36-year-old Champions League winner, who started his career with the Blues in 1995, left the Premier League champions after his contract at Stamford Bridge expired on 30 June.

Terry, who won 78 caps for England, played 717 games for Chelsea and won his fifth Premier League title in May.

Villa finished 13th in the Championship last season but Steve Bruce’s side are among the favourites to win automatic promotion to the top flight in 2017-18.
