Ex-Aston Villa No2 Terry firming as Swansea favourite

Former Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry is confirming as favourite for the Swansea City job.

Terry has left his role at Aston Villa - and is now odds-on favourite to fill the managerial vacancy at Swansea City.

Terry, 40, today confirmed his departure from Villa after joining the coaching staff in October 2018.

The ex-England and Chelsea skipper assisted manager Dean Smith in helping the Midlands club reach the Premier League, survive there and then finish comfortably in mid-table last term.

His exit coincides with the uncertainty at Swansea, who are scratching around to find a new manager after seeing their top target, John Eustace, perform a u-turn over the weekend, says the Mirror.

The Championship side last week parted company with Steve Cooper after two seasons in which he led them to successive play-off campaigns.
