Sheffield United are reportedly looking to include John Terry in his first managerial role as Chris Wilder’s replacement.
Terry has emerged as a possible option for the Blades given his experience on the sidelines in the Championship since joining Dean Smith’s backroom at Aston Villa in October 2018.
Terry was an integral part of Villa’s promotion of the championship in 2019 through the playoffs and that experience has caught Sheffield United’s attention, according to The mirror

The former Chelsea and England captain has long had ambitions to move into football management, with his time at Villa seen as a major stepping stone in that journey.
Clearly, Villa is behind Terry’s ambitions when the right opportunity presents itself.
Terry is an influential and esteemed figure in Smith’s management unit at Villa.
Earlier this month, Ezri Konsa, who has emerged as one of the most promising young English defenders in the Premier League, attributed Terry for his role in the development of the 23-year-old.
With his knowledge of the championship, Terry could be the right candidate to help the Blades return to the Premier League immediately after a horror season that saw club legend Wilder sacked in March.
