John Terry is to consider an offer to return to former club, Chelsea as a coach after rejecting the chance to join Russian side Spartak Moscow.
Terry, 37, was inch close to completing a free transfer move to Spartak Moscow after successfully undergoing a medical over the weekend.
The defender however, yesterday, took to his Instagram to confirm that he is cancelling the transfer after ‘considerable thought’ as he does not want to move his young family to Russia.

After considerable thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season. They are an ambitious club and I have been very impressed with their professionalism. But after assessing this move with my family, we’ve decided this is not the right move for ourselves at this time. Good Luck Spartak 🔴⚪️ @fcsm_official
Now, reports from renowned British outlet Metro state that the former Chelsea captain is considering whether or not to retire from active football and that he has an offer from English Championship side Aston Villa, who he left in July after the expiry of his one-year deal with the club.
Meanwhile, the Sun report that Chelsea have offered Terry a deal to return to the club as a first team coach.
If the defender is not offered the right playing contract, he will almost definitely take Chelsea’s offer to join their coaching crew.
Terry’s managerial ambition are well known but he seems not to fancy hanging his boots at the moment.
If he accepts the Chelsea offer, he will join fellow Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola on the coaching crew.
