Aston Villa coach John Terry is reportedly one of the names being considered for the managerial job at Premier League outfit Sheffield United. According to the Daily Mirror, John Terry is on the radar of the Blades who are looking for a new manager after Chris Wilder left the club last month.

Wilder is a former Sheffield United player who became manager at the club. He was responsible for taking the Blades from League One football to Premier League football in a few years. Wilder masterminded an unlikely top half finish for Sheffield United at the end of their first season back in the Premier League last term.

However, they have not been able to maintain the same form this term with the team languishing in last place on the league table.

The Blades are almost certain to finish last on the table at the end of this season. They have just 14 points from 31 games and are a whooping 18 points from safety. Sheffield United are 10 points from West Brom who are second bottom on the league standings.

Wilder resigned from his position as the Blades boss shortly before the away trip to Leicester City last month with Paul Heckingbottom named as the caretaker manager till the end of the season. To this effect, the club needs a new manager for their campaign back in the Championship next season and John Terry could be the man for the job.

It was reported that the club wants a big name for the job and Terry fits the bill. The ex-Chelsea centre back played 78 times for England in addition to almost 500 games for the Blues. He became the assistant manager at Aston Villa shortly after ending his playing career at the club. He spent one year at Villa as a player immediately after his Chelsea career ended.
