Aston Villa boss Smith insists Terry happy where he is

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith insists assistant manager John Terry is happy in his role.

Terry is being linked with the manager's job at Bournemouth.

“I've always said right from the outset that John Terry came here to learn about coaching, he's become a very, very good assistant manager to myself," he said.

“But ultimately, he's come in to learn the trade to ultimately become a number one.

“There's been a lot of speculation over JT, he's really enjoying his work, he's a big part of why we're having a successful season this year, but if JT comes into me and asks me whether he can go then that's another conversation I have with Johan Lange and Christian Purslow.

"But, at the moment he is happy to be at Aston Villa."
