Former Chelsea captain Terry spent last season with Villa, who narrowly missed out on a return to the Premier League after losing the Championship play-off final to Fulham in May.

Villa have been chasing the 20-year-old striker for a while, but Chelsea have been carefully considering their options.

On Friday, Tammy Abraham became the 36th Chelsea player to be sent out on loan this summer.

"I'm excited for this new chapter", Abraham told the official Aston Villa website.

Aston Villa have until 5pm to get the deal over the line and the club are now expected to snap the Chelsea striker on loan before the deadline closes.

"At this stage of my career, I need games and this is a great place for me to come and showcase my talent".

The England global spent last term on loan at relegated Swansea City - scoring five goals in 31 appearances for the Swans.

Having sealed the move, Abraham has now revealed that John Terry played a key role in persuading him to make the move to Villa Park.

Adomah helped Boro win promotion to the Premier League in 2016, and Villa manager Steve Bruce has reportedly informed Adomah he won't be offered a new contract.
