A Chelsea and England legend in his playing days, Terry has spent the last two seasons at Aston Villa, and is now assistant manager at Villa Park to Dean Smith.
Terry played his part in helping the Villains regain their Premier League status by winning May’s playoff final against Derby County at Wembley, but it seems the former Three Lions skipper could be on his way to St. James’s Park.
According to the Sun, Terry was a rank outsider when it was revealed Rafa Benitez would be standing down as Magpies boss last week, and was initially priced as high as 50/1 to take the reins.
However, price compilers Oddschecker now have Terry listed at as low as 6/1 following a flurry of bets, and the 38-year-old is second-favourite with some bookmakers.
We all know Newcastle owner Mike Ashley likes to save a few quid or two, so could he perhaps be tempted to appoint a rookie coach rather than a hardened veteran?
And would Terry be a decent choice?
What do you think?
