John Terry has been named Aston Villa’s new captain following his summer move to Villa Park. Terry left Chelsea at the end of last season and signed a one-year deal at Villa earlier in July.
Steve Bruce’s side finished 13th in the Championship last season and Terry will secure a £2million bonus if he helps the club return to the top flight after two seasons away.

During his time as skipper, Chelsea won multiple trophies including the Champions League and five Premier League titles.
