According to talkSPORT, Aston Villa is one the verge of signing a one-year deal with John Terry, and it seems that this transfer saga could be over by the end of the weekend.

Steve Bruce was interested in bringing the veteran defender to his club ever since the end of the season when Terry officially announced his retirement.

However, a number of other clubs were keen on signing the former Chelsea captain, and Terry was weighing his options and taking his time with the decision.

After going on a vacation, where he met with Steve Bruce, the 36-year-old center-back is now back in England, and according to reports – the deal could be sealed in a day or two.

Tony Xia, the Aston Villa chairman, was dropping hints on Twitter about the new signing, announcing the big news in a pretty obvious way. Terry rejected several other offers, including Birmingham City, and he wants to help the Villains earn a promotion back to the Premier League.
