Aston Villa centre-half John Terry is going to consider his future at Villa Park, should Steve Bruce’s side get promoted this year.
Terry is delaying making his decision until the season is completed, as he does not want to play against Chelsea following his illustrious career in London.
Following Villa’s impressive 2-0 win over Birmingham, the Clarets find themselves in the automatic promotion places, behind local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Telegraph report that there is a mutual agreement between Tery and the club, that the former England international can trigger a 12-month-extension to his current deal.
Terry has become a mainstay in Steve Bruce’s back four, amassing 22 appearances for the club this season, but Villa are reluctant to extend his contract without knowing what division they will be playing in next season.
Bruce will be hoping that the former Chelsea star will extend his current contract, as the defensive prowess that Villa no have makes them hard to beat, going unbeaten in eleven games.
For Villa, the chance of promotion to the Premier League is realistic, as they control their own fate. They will be promoted if they don’t drop points against the teams in and around them.
It is thought that a decision will be made as soon as Villa find out their destinantion next season.
