Three Possible Destinations For John Terry After He Delays Contract Extension At Aston Villa

Aston Villa defender John Terry is weighing up his future at Villa Park as he is yet to make a decision on whether to extend his stay for another year at the West Midlands club. According to recent reports in the English press, the Villa captain has opted to delay his next move until the end of the current campaign as he focusses on helping the Villans earn a promotion back to the Premier League. Some sources are now claiming that the veteran English defender and Villa have a mutual option to trigger another 12 months to his current £60,000-a-week contract.

The 37-year-old centre-back has made a significant impact at Villa Park since making an emotional decision to quit Chelsea on a free transfer after serving the club for two decades. He opted to make a switch out of Stamford Bridge in favour of a move to Villa, who are now second in the Skybet Championship after earning a 2-0 victory versus their West Midlands rivals, Birmingham City on Sunday. The result marks John Terry’s 227th clean sheet in English football.

With his contract running out at the end of the season, it remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of the English defender. Let’s take a look at three potential destinations for John Terry to consider next summer.

Leeds United

The Peacocks are currently in 11th place in the English Championship standings with a tally of 31 points in 27 matches. Paul Heckingbottom has recently taken over as the new manager at the club and could benefit from acquiring someone of the calibre of John Terry. The former England captain has a wealth of experience in the Premier League and could boost their chances of securing promotion to the top tier of English football next season.

Norwich City

The Canaries have struggled so far in their English Championship campaign. Daniel Farke’s side are currently occupying the 13th place and looks set to finish in the bottom half of the Championship table this season. The addition of Terry to their backline will undoubtedly bolster Farke’s defensive options at the club and improve them significantly for the upcoming season.

Sheffield United

The Blades are in dire need of some quality in the summer, if they fail to secure promotion to the Premier League this season. They currently find themselves in 8th place in the league table, just 3 points behind the final playoff place. If Chris Wilder fails to reach the playoffs this season, acquiring an experienced defender like Terry next summer could definitely enhance their chances of securing promotion in the next campaign.
