Chelsea and England legend John Terry will decide whether to extend his stay with current club Aston Villa at the end of the season according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 37-year-old Barking born centre-back penned a one-year deal with the Sky Bet Championship club last summer following his release by English Premier League champions Chelsea.

Terry has played an important role for Aston Villa this season and with the player’s contract heading towards its expiry, it is thought that discussions over his future will not begin until the season ends in May.

It has recently been reported that Villa are not currently in a position to discuss new contracts with any of their players with the club having to trim their wage bill due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations and keeping hold of Terry might just hinge on winning promotion back to the top flight.

Terry is again not expected to be short of offers in the summer with clubs from both England and overseas set to offer deals to the veteran defender. One of the reasons for the move to Villa Park last summer was that Terry would be unlikely to have to play against former club Chelsea and while promotion to the English Premier League would surely finance a new deal for the player, it would also throw up the conundrum of at least two fixtures against The Blues.

Since joining Villa, Terry has made 22 appearances in all competitions in which he has scored one goal.
