Revealed: Huge majority of Aston Villa fans want Bruce to re-sign John Terry

A massive 80 per cent of Aston Villa fans polled want Steve Bruce to re-sign 37-year-old centre-back John Terry after he left the club amid the financial problems earlier in the summer.

After losing 1-0 to Fulham in the Championship Playoff Final and missing out on promotion to the Premier League, Villa plunged into huge financial difficulties and faced a winding-up order from HMRC over unpaid taxes. However, a deal was finally struck with the authorities to keep the club from administration and Villa were eventually saved by billionaires Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris, who took a controlling stake in the Birmingham club from Dr Tony Xia.

Former Chelsea legend Terry had already departed though and is still a free agent this summer. His age did not hold him back last season as he made 36 appearances in all competitions for Villa and ended the season in the EFL’s Team of the Year.

The majority of Villa fans are now keen to see Terry back at Villa Park and just 20 per cent who voted in our poll were against his return. Check out the full results below.
