Earlier this afternoon Aston Villa confirmed that John Terry would be parting company with us following our failure to reach the Premier League and secure promotion this season.

The 37-year-old certainly made his mark following his shock arrival at Villa Park over the summer following his departure from Chelsea and had we gained promotion back to the top-flight we did hold a 12-month option on him.

Presumably owing to Financial Fair Play issues, we will not be doing a new deal with him and the former England man moves on now to pastures new.

A statement from the Official Site read.

“We would like to place on record our most sincere thanks for the effort and professionalism he showed with us last season. John is a true leader and was everything and more than we hoped. Hugely popular and influential in the dressing room, he played a real captain’s role in creating the incredible bond the players shared with our supporters, and vice-versa.”

With Steve Bruce glowing in admiration for his efforts with us and the likes of Jack Grealish more than nodding in his direction for his role off the pitch as well as on it, the final words go to the fans themselves.
