John Terry considering extending his stay at Aston Villa: 'I still have the appetite'

John Terry has not ruled out extending his stay with Aston Villa after a strong season that has seen them secure a Championship playoff place.

Terry, 37, left longtime club Chelsea in the summer to join up with Steve Bruce's side and has been a key part of their push for promotion this campaign.

And Terry, when asked if he's considering another year with the club, told talkSPORT that the desire to play is there but cautioned he was only focused on the season at hand.

"I still have the appetite and hunger for sure. I just want to get this season finished," the former England captain said.

"My aim at the start of the season was to get us up, whether that was automatic or via the playoffs.

"One last push and hopefully we can go out with a bang and make it an easy decision at the end.

"Chelsea will always be my club for sure but since I have been at Aston Villa, I have given my all and the fans have been superb with me. They have welcomed me with open arms and I like to think I have given back on the pitch and on the training field.

"It has been a good combination and worked well for both, I feel.

"It's been an incredible journey so far. It is one I have thoroughly enjoyed. I certainly the made the right decision in the summer

"I have really enjoyed it -- they are a great bunch of lads, the manager has been superb with me, and the fans as well have been excellent.

"This football club deserves to be in the Premier League -- the support it has got, how big it is, the players, everyone deserves it. It is huge.

"The travelling support is incredible. We are equipped to go up. We need a little bit of luck and hopefully we will get that."
