But Terry is not ready to give up football altogether, and while he still on the lookout for a potential move as a player, Chelsea have reportedly offered him a coaching role.

Terry had looked set for a move to Russian Federation after reportedly passing a medical with Spartak Moscow.

Terry had flown by private jet to Rome on Friday for a medical with the club ahead of finalising personal terms on a tax-free deal, believed to be in the region of £3million a year.

"After considerable thought, I have chose to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow", he wrote.

Terry was a popular figure at the club last season, captaining the side and forming a fruitful partnership with James Chester at the heart of Villa's defence. "I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season", Terry wrote on his official Instagram account.

Terry left Villa after they lost the Championship play-off final to Fulham at the end of May and has been on the look-out for a new club, keeping himself fit over the summer.

As The Sun report, Terry was in talks with Spartak Moscow over the possibility of signing for them, but he and his family unanimously agreed that it was not the right move for them at the current time.

He made more than 700 appearances for Chelsea, winning five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the 2012 Champions League.
