Terry return on Xmas list.
VILLA boss Steve Bruce is refusing to rule out a 2017 return for John Terry.
Bruce said the inspirational captain, out with a broken metatarsal since the start of November, could return for the busy festive period.
He said: "Scott Hogan, Gabby Agbonlahor, they are back, and I believe big Mile Jedinak is training.
"We set him (Terry) on a training regime but he has done well and it is quicker than we thought. We could see John Terry again in 2017, but we have to box clever as he has had a broken bone. Hopefully John will be back in the next couple of weeks.
"Jonathan Kodjia has had his operation now so we have to wait and see... it will be far into the New Year."
