John Terry lifts first trophy as Aston Villa player, and it's... different

John Terry kicked off his Aston Villa career by adding yet another trophy to his already bulging collection of silverware.

The former Chelsea captain made his bow for Villa in a preseason tournament out in Germany, seeing off competition from Duisburg and Hertha Berlin to win the "Cup of Traditions".

As unlikely as it may seem, John Terry has dropped down a division and signed for Aston Villa on a one-year contract.

The Championship side produced a clever little video to announce their big-name signing via the medium of a WhatsApp group chat between the players, manager Steve Bruce and the club chairman, Dr Tony Xia.
