The former Chelsea skipper has claimed that he has already turned down two "decent-sized clubs," saying that he is "in no rush" to leave Villa.

Terry admitted that he hopes to return to Stamford Bridge and become Chelsea manager in the future.

But the former England international insisted he would not take the Tottenham head coach role, as well as saying that he "wouldn't be welcome at West Ham" either.

Speaking to The Times, Terry said: "My ambition is very, very clear. There's an end goal for me and that's managing Chelsea Football Club.

"My team will be winning -- hopefully -- very honest, very organised, very well drilled, very well prepared and with a back four.

"I look at Lamps [Frank Lampard] and Stevie [Gerrard] and the success they've both had. Lamps in his first season at Chelsea, and what Stevies done up at Rangers is unbelievable.

"l probably wasn't ready to go into coaching then. I am now. But I'm not just going to jump into anything. I've turned down two jobs since I've been here [at Villa].

"Decent-sized clubs. But it's going to take something special for me to leave here.

"I've got one more year left at Villa. I'm in a privileged position because I'm in no rush. I want to be a No 1 but I'll get there at some point."

Terry shut out the idea of succeeding former Chelsea manager Mourinho at Tottenham, saying he would 'never' step up for the role.

The Villa assistant head coach explained: "Never take it. Never. Spurs is the only one I wouldn't take.

"I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be welcome at West Ham too."
