Aston Villa close in on another Premier League signing

Terry has signed a one-year deal with Championship outfit Aston Villa, after snubbing several offers to remain in the Premier League.

Terry is a big addition to the Villa back line, but manager Bruce still has work to do between the sticks, with the goalkeeping situation up in the air.

The 30-year-old is nearly certain to leave Manchester City this summer, having spent last season on loan in with Torino in Serie A.

After an initially slow start to life at Villa Park, the former England Under-20 global did impress and helped Villa keep a number of clean sheets, before returning to United earlier this summer.

Johnstone, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Villa Park, still has another year left on his contract at United after this one.

Manager Steve Bruce said: 'We hope to be able to announce something in the next 24/48 hours if we can.

Villa needed someone to sit in the middle of the park and allow their creative players the freedom to do their thing and Bruce look to have secured the ideal man. "I hope we can do a bit of business pretty soon".

The player has enjoyed eight previous loan spells away from Manchester United with Johnstone having represented Scunthorpe United, Walsall, Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers (twice) and Preston North End (twice) prior to his time with Villa. I know they go on tour on Sunday.

Villa and Hull fans... what do you make of the news? "We will see what develops in the next 24-48 hours".
