Wright-Phillips, who now plays for New York Red Bulls with his brother Bradley, has urged Terry to join him across the pond.
“It would be amazing to have JT here," Wright-Phillips told The Sun.
“Everyone knows he has been one of the best players in England for a long time.
“He's been amazing for his entire career and his reading of the game is unbelievable.
“To have someone here like him - even if it's not at this club - would really benefit this league and benefit the players playing around him.
“Learning off him first hand instead of just watching on TV would give a boost to all players, whether it's with or against him.
"Thee league is getting better and bigger and bigger every year so why not help it get even bigger?"
