Aston Villa boss Smith confident Terry not going for Bristol City job

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is confident of the commitment of No2 John Terry.

Chelsea legend Terry is being linked with the vacant manager's job at Bristol City.

But Smith told Sky Sports News: “I have spoken to John and he is fully committed to our cause here at Aston Villa."

When pushed on whether things could change at the end of the season, Smith added: “I don't think we can look at the summer, we've got to look at now.

“They've got Dean Holden, a former coach of mine, in charge at the moment. He is working hard for his club and JT is certainly working very hard for me.

“We've got a very good relationship and we enjoy working together."
