John Terry is reportedly on Sheffield United’s radar as they continue their search for a new manager.
Legendary boss Chris Wilder left the Blades last month, with Paul Heckingbottom taking over on an interim basis until the end of the season.
According to the Mirror, the Bramall Lane hierarchy is keen to appoint a big name as it aims for a quick return to the Premier League.
Having endured a miserable second season back in the top flight, failing to win until January and collecting just 14 points from 30 games in all, the Blade’s relegation is an inevitability.
Since October 2018, Terry has been part of Dean Smith’s coaching staff at Aston Villa, who he helped to promotion from the Championship via the playoffs that season and top-flight survival on the final day last year.
Terry has been open about his desire to manage one day, and it is thought that Villa will not stand in his way should a suitable opportunity arise.
The ex-England skipper, who won 78 caps for his country, ended his playing with a single campaign at Villa.
That followed a 20-year spell at Chelsea during which he made over 700 appearances and captained the Blues to five Premier League titles and Champions League success.
