Chelsea legend Terry extends Aston Villa contract

John Terry has extended his Aston Villa contract until 2021.

The Chelsea legend served as an assistant to Dean Smith during the club's successful promotion season.

Villa chief Smith said: "I am really pleased that JT has extended his current deal as he is a pleasure to work with.

"We have had a successful start to our Villa coaching careers and JT has been instrumental in joining myself, Richard O'Kelly and Neil Cutler.

"He has complimented the team that we have and I have no doubts he will go on to be a top manager in the years to come.

"Our focus now is on the coming season and to try to continue the progress we have had in the past eight months."
