Former Chelsea captain and defender, John Terry has been handed the captain armband at Aston Villa.
With Steve Bruce aiming for a return to the Premier League, he has opted for a change in his leadership, replacing James Chester with John Terry.
Terry was a long serving captain at Chelsea, captaining the club since the 2004/05 season, before leaving for the championship.
“Aston Villa are pleased to announce John Terry as captain,” the club said in a brief statement. “Terry will be skipper for the 2017-18 campaign.”
