Terry leaving Aston Villa ‘inevitable’ but a ‘blow’, claims pundit

John Terry leaving Aston Villa is a “blow” for Dean Smith’s side and the timing of his departure is “odd”, according to Frank McAvennie.

Terry spent a season with as a player in 2017/18. After retiring, the defender became Dean Smith’s assistant manager at Villa in October 2018.

The Chelsea legend has spent three seasons in that role. This has been a successful period for the Villans which was started by them earning promotion back to the Premier League in 2018/19.



McAvennie has had his say on Terry’s departure in an interview with . He is “shocked” at the timing of his exit:

“It was inevitable he was going to move, it’s a blow. He’s always made it known he wants to be a manager.

“He will have learned so much from Dean Smith, it was a great decision to move to Villa in the first place.

“I know a lot of people who have taken that step. They have been an assistant then maybe gone to Europe for a job.

“Everything he’s said has been the right thing. It’s just a bit surprising how quickly it’s happened. There wasn’t even a hint.

“The season is so close as well, it’s an odd time to do it. I’m shocked.

“I wish him all the best though, hopefully he can do a Steven Gerrard and find success.”

Elsewhere, Aston Villa are planning moves for three midfielders with

They have over the £30m signing of Leon Bailey. He was involved in 17 goals from his 30 Bundesliga outings last season.

On Friday it was revealed that the Villans have had a

Their third target is Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell.

It is believed that the Canaries have “no intention” of selling Cantwell and it would take a “huge offer” for them to be tempted to cash in on the midfielder.

Wolves ‘pay attention’ to Spurs as winger rejects £30m Leeds move

Adama Traore is “not interested” in moving to Leeds United after Wolves received a £30m bid from the Yorkshire club, according to journalist Duncan Castles.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Traore in the past with reports earlier in this window claiming that .

And earlier this month,  that Leeds United were willing to re-attempt to sign him this transfer window, with Marcelo Bielsa a massive fan of the Spaniard.



And now Castles claims that Leeds have submitted a bid for Traore but that, despite Wolves being “interested”, the 25-year-old has no intention of moving “sideways” to Elland Road.

When asked whether Leeds’ Premier League status was now on a par with Wolves amid the rumours, podcast: “Yeah, I think that is the conclusion Adama Traore came to when he was informed of this bid.

“The offer that I’m told Wolves had proposed to them by another Premier League club comes from Leeds United. They were prepared to pay an initial £30m for Adama, who is a player that is well known to Leeds director of football, Victor Orta, who signed him from Aston Villa when he was in charge at Middlesbrough a few years back.

“My guidance is that Adama is not interested in moving there and sees himself, rather making a sideways move within the Premier League, he wants to move up to a club with Champions League status, or at least, very realistic chances of reaching the Champions League soon.

“He’s under contract until 2023. As we’ve been stating for months now, he has effectively been placed on the market by Wolves. [He is] one of the players they feel they can raise significant cash from in this window in order to reinvest in the team.

“And again the guidance on this was that Wolves were interested in this offer, so I think we are getting a sense of how much they’d be prepared to sell the player for.

“They’re in a really difficult position in that they really need to do a deal in this window to maximise income on the player. They’ve had talks about extending his contract which haven’t really gone very far. The offers they made to Adama were not anywhere close to what he was looking for as a realistic offer to stay at Wolves.

“I think they will be pushing still to get a deal elsewhere. I think they will probably pay a little attention to what Tottenham do in that area of the field because Nuno Espirito Santo was impressed and enjoyed working with him.

“I don’t think he would be against working with Adama again if the opportunity was to arise and Tottenham have the potential to take a lot of income in this transfer window.
