John Terry will not make any decision about his future until the summer, with the 37-year-old currently fully focused on helping current side Aston Villa achieve promotion to the Premier League.

That is according to the ​Sun, who believe that the controversial ex-England star is thinking about retiring from the game altogether, but also hasn't ruled out either extending his Villa contract for another season, or moving to a league such as the American MLS or Chinese Super League.

Terry joined ​Aston Villa last summer on a £60,000 per week contract, and has had a mixed time at the club. He suffered a metatarsal injury in November which ruled him out for 10 weeks, but has recently returned and has a key member of the first team, helping the side move to second place in the ​Championship table after a 2-0 win against bitter rivals ​Birmingham City at the weekend.

His decision may well depend on whether or not Villa manage to achieve promotion. Terry, who made 717 appearances in total for ​Chelsea, may well fancy one more crack at playing at the highest level, although some have suggested that he may not relish lining up against his former club in the ​Premier League.

Terry could also possibly consider management as a potential future career, and he recently praised ex-boss Jose Mourinho as being the​ 'best' coach he ever worked under. 

Villa face a big few months ahead, and Terry will have to ensure he remains focused on the present rather than his long-term future when Villa travel to London on Saturday for a huge game against fellow promotion chasers ​Fulham.
