John Terry hopes to help Aston Villa return to the Premier League before making a decision on his future.

The former England captain joined Villa last summer after 22 years at Chelsea, signing a 12-month contract with the Birmingham side who were relegated from the top flight in May 2016.

Terry has played 32 matches for Villa, who are fourth with two matches remaining and appear set to feature in the play-off battle for promotion. Villa are four points behind second-placed Cardiff.

The 37-year-old defender told talkSPORT: “I still have the appetite and hunger for sure. I just want to get this season finished.

“My aim at the start of the season was to get us up, whether that was automatic or via the play-offs.

“One last push and hopefully we can go out with a bang and make it an easy decision at the end.

“This football club deserves to be in the Premier League – the support it has got, how big it is, the players, everyone deserves it.”

Terry previously stated he would not wish to play against Chelsea. He has no doubts he made the right move when he left Stamford Bridge.

He added: “It’s been an incredible journey so far. It is one I have thoroughly enjoyed. I certainly made the right decision in the summer.”
