Aston Villa have made 'bigger offer than Birmingham' for John Terry

Former England captain John Terry (pix) has been made an offer by second tier outfit Birmingham City, their manager Harry Redknpapp revealed on Thursday.

Terry will officially become a free agent when his Chelsea contract expires at the end of this month.

It seems that Villa and Birmingham are the main players in the chase for the defender, who is 36 years of age right now.

Speaking with TalkSport, Redknapp confirmed that he and Birmingham had made an offer to Terry.

The former Blues captain won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League during his time at Stamford Bridge, but he must now consider his next move.

Both clubs have wealthy Chinese backers, meaning Terry could be the big victor here if the two clubs continue to increase their offers, with a drop into the Championship looking increasingly likely right now.

Aston Villa have been cut from 5/1 last night to as short as 5/6 to sign John Terry this summer, with 9/4 now the best price available.
