​​Aston Villa ace John Terry is believed to be considering to extend his contract a further year should his side achieve promotion to the Premier League, but could demand that his deal sees him excused from matches against his former side, Chelsea.


According to the Telegraphshould they beat Fulham in the ​Championship Playoff Final, the former England captain has the option to extend his £80k per week deal with the Villains at the end of the season. 


The 37-year-old is however wary of playing against his beloved former team, and may insist upon missing games against them in return for signing the extension.

Villa fans may well raise their eyebrows at the suggestion of their star centre back potentially missing two massive matches next season, especially given the difficulty the club may face to survive relegation should they achieve promotion back to the ​Premier League. Terry spent 19 seasons with ​Chelsea, winning five league titles, five FA Cups and a Champions League.


Needless to say Twitter had a field day:

Steve Bruce's Villains will face the tricky task of getting past ​Fulham in Saturday's playoff final at Wembley Stadium, with opposition players such as Ryan Sessegnon and Aleksandar Mitrović in scintillating form. The West Midlands side haven't been in the Premier League for two seasons, and will be desperate to reestablish themselves as an English top tier side.


In other news, ​a report has claimed that Terry could snub the opportunity to stay at Villa, even if the club achieve promotion. It has been suggested that a big money move to either the Chinese Super League or the MLS could tempt the veteran defender away from English football, with a number of clubs reportedly prepared to shell out a staggering £300k per week wage.
