John Terry to leave Aston Villa after play-off defeat
Aston Villa have confirmed that club captain John Terry will leave the club this summer.
Terry joined Villa last summer and made 36 appearances as the club lost the Championship play-off final.
“Aston Villa can confirm the club will part company with John Terry,” the club said in a statement.
“We would like to place on record our most sincere thanks for the effort and professionalism he showed with us last season.
“John is a true leader and was everything and more that we hoped. Hugely popular and influential in the dressing room, he played a real captain’s role in creating the incredible bond the players shared with our supporters, and vice-versa.
“We hope he looks back on his time with Villa fondly and we wish him the very best as his career moves forward.”
The 37-year-old is yet to confirm whether he will continue playing football next season.
