Ian McGarry has been speaking on the latest edition of The Transfer Window podcast, and he has been talking about news from clubs around England.
One of the teams he spent a bit of time on was Derby County and their vacant manager position.
Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry has been linked with a move to Pride Park, but it seems as if, according to McGarry, that is unlikely to happen.
He said: “I noticed John Terry’s been mentioned in reports with regards to the job as head coach, although he is not someone whose name I have heard in conversations with regards to taking over at Pride Park.”
Do you think Terry should stay?
Yes, he should remain with us
No, let him go
TIF Thoughts on Terry and McGarry’s information on him…
He is said to have a good influence on the dressing room and has helped Tyrone Mings improve as a player, while he has been linked with the job at Derby with the impending takeover from Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan edging closer.
However, if McGarry is to be believed, then it looks like they have other candidates in mind, and Terry looks like he will stay at Villa for now.
Still, the Rams are struggling badly and are rock bottom of the Championship, four points from safety.
So, maybe that wouldn’t be the ideal job for Terry to take on as his first job as a manager.
We believe Terry is better off staying at Villa Park anyway and waiting for another opportunity as a first-team manager.
