Report: John Terry To Retire And Move Into Punditry

John Terry is reportedly set to bring his playing career to an end.

The 37-year-old left Aston Villa at the end of May following their loss in the Championship playoff final to Fulham.

Terry captained Villa last season as they finished fourth in English football's second tier but ultimately failed to gain promotion.

According to the Sunday Mirror, the former Chelsea was preparing to take a step into coaching and management. However, an intriguing opportunity has come his way.

Its said that Terry could fill the gap left by Thierry Henry in the Sky Sports studio.

Henry stepped away from his punditry work with the broadcaster last week to concentrate on coaching. He has since been linked with the Aston Villa job despite Steve Bruce still being in charge at Villa Park.

The former Arsenal striker is currently assistant manager to Roberto Martinez with Belgium. Henry moved into punditry in 2015, earning a reported £4 million per year with Sky.

Terry would work alongside former England teammates Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.
