Chelsea legend John Terry may be named as the new boss at Derby County in the coming days.
According to Sky, Terry is excited to leave his post as Aston Villa manager and takeover as the head coach of Derby in the English Championship, where Wayne Rooney is the club’s caretaker coach.
The club is also set to have new owners that will inject bigger financial investments in the historic club.
“John Terry is among the frontrunners to be the next manager of Derby County, once the club’s takeover is complete.
“Sky Sports News can confirm newspaper reports linking Terry to the Derby job, which the current Aston Villa assistant coach sees as an excellent first opportunity in management,” said the report.
“It is understood Terry is also excited by the prospect of substantial new investment in the club by a prominent member of the Abu Dhabi royal family.
“Sheikh Khaled’s Derventio Holdings is going through the final legal stages of buying out current owner Mel Morris, who is assisting with the pursuit of a new manager alongside senior members of Sheikh Khaled’s executive team,” Sky added.
