Aston Villa assistant coach Terry under consideration at Sheffield Utd

Aston Villa assistant coach John Terry is under consideration at Sheffield United.

The Blades are searching for a high-profile boss after parting company with Chris Wilder last month.

And former Chelsea and England captain Terry, who has made no secret of his desire to move into management, is on their radar, says the Mirror.

The experience he gained then appeals to Bramall Lane bigwigs, who want to push for an immediate return to the Premier League next season with the club on the brink of relegation from the top flight this time out.

Villa and manager Dean Smith have always been aware of Terry's ambitions and will back his bid to assume a role in frontline management when the right opportunity is offered to him.

Wilder was axed by the Blades just two months short of his five-year anniversary at the South Yorkshire club.
