Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves has inadvertently paid tribute to Aston Villa defender John Terry on Instagram.

Neves was showing off his impressive collection of shirts that he has collected over the years, and one shirt in there was particularly eye-catching for Villa fans.

The Wolves midfielder had placed Terry’s shirt in the top right of the picture, alongside some other legends of the game.

Neves had the kits of the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Eden Hazard and Thiago Alcantara in the post, but Terry’s also took pride of place.

It shows just how highly regarded Terry is among his fellow professionals, and what a coup Villa pulled off by bringing the Chelsea legend to the club last summer.

Neves will almost certainly be interested in watching how Terry gets on at the weekend, as he looks to see whether Villa will join Wolves in the Premier League next term.

Nuno’s side dominated the Championship this season, and will bring top flight football to Molineux next term, but Villa’s future is less certain.

Steve Bruce’s side take on Fulham in the play off final on Wembley on Saturday, with 90 minutes all that stands between them and promotion.
