John Terry has joined Championship side Aston Villa after a glittering career at Stamford Bridge came to an end at the close of last season.

The move by the Chelsea legend was confirmed by Villa owner and chairman Tony Xia on Monday.

Terry, 36, leaves Stamford Bridge after 717 games, five Premier League titles and a European Cup triumph in 2012.

“It’s a club I have admired from afar for many years,”  he told the BBC.

“There are fantastic facilities at Bodymoor Heath, Villa Park is one of the finest stadiums in the country and there’s a good group of players here, with an experienced and successful manager in Steve Bruce.

“I can’t wait to get started now and look to help the squad achieve something special this season.”
