Aston Villa have emerged as shock contenders to sign Chelsea captain John Terry, according to reports.
The long-serving Blues captain has already announced that he is leaving Stamford Bridge, and several teams have been credited with an interest in his signature.
According to The Sun, Terry met Villa manager Steve Bruce for talks about his future over a game of golf at the Quinta do Lago resort in Portugal last weekend.
The report goes on to claim that the 36-year-old is keen on the idea of leading the West Midlanders out of the Championship and back to the Premier League.
Terry has made 690 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 65 goals and winning 15 major honours in his 22 years at the West London club.
