John Terry may be in line for a shock early move into management at Aston Villa.
Steve Bruce’s side have suffered a terrible start to the 2017-18 Championship season, languishing in second-last position near the foot of the table.
With just one point from three games, the ex-Hull gaffer is under immense pressure already.
Rumours are floating about the West Midlands that former Chelsea legend, Terry – brought in during the summer to add steel and experience – could be about to usurp him as boss.
The Villans play Norwich at home on Saturday and a positive result may quell the discontent somewhat, but lose again, and there could be trouble.
Ladbrokes’ spokesperson, Cian Carroll said: “Rumours have been doing the rounds that JT has a clause in his Villa contract that will eventually see him take over from Steve Bruce. That could be sooner than anyone imagined if this form continues.”
John Terry to be next permanent Aston Villa Manager – 5/1
Steve Bruce to not see out the season – 2/1
