Thank you for everything, JT - and good luck!

Announcing the same on his official Instagram handle, the 37-year-old said that it is the right time for him to "retire from playing".

Terry, who left Aston Villa in the summer, has called time on a 23-year career that has included five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, the Champions League, Europa League and three League Cups with Chelsea.

The former England captain recently rejected a chance to play for Spartak Moscow, saying a move to Russian Federation was not right for his family.

"I've made the necessary move and I've sent in my CV and I'm actually trying to make contact with the chief executive of the football club", Yorke told Sky Sports yesterday.

"I dearly hope Villa can get back to where they once were as a football club".

Announcing his retirement, Terry declared that his "heart will always belong to Chelsea" - the club where he spent nearly his entire career, winning five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and three League Cups.

The defender was made Chelsea captain by Jose Mourinho following the retirement of Marcel Desailly and led the club through one of the most important periods in their history. He also scored six goals in 78 caps for the Three Lions.

Terry, 37, announced his retirement as a player just a few days ago (he played for Villa last season as they lost in the playoff final, coming up one win short of promotion back to the PL) and it is believed he is in the running to take on the vacant manager position at Villa after Steve Bruce was sacked.

Terry's last game remains the play-off final defeat to Fulham back in May. My club career and heart will always belong to Chelsea.

"I am ready for the next chapter in my life and hopefully it bring at least half the success I had as a player".

Despite backing Steve Bruce at the start of the season, the board clearly felt the ex-Manchester United captain had taken the Midlands side as far as he could with them lying 12 in the Championship.
