The Lengend John Terry is eyeing promotion with his new club Aston Villa as new season for the English second division league begins.

Villa will host Hull City on Saturday, a game Terry hopes his side wins.

It will be Terry’s first match outside the Premier League since a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest in 2000.

"It would be really special, it would be up there for me. To step out of my comfort zone was a big decision," Terry said.

"It's probably one of the most unpredictable leagues within world football. "We have to go up as champions, if not automatically.

"Does that bring more pressure on you? Probably. Do we like that as a group? Yeah. With the history of this club, it deserves to be back in the Premier League."

After winning 15 major honours in 22 years with Chelsea, Terry had to search for a new club following his release at the end of last season and rejected interest from several Premier League clubs to sign a 60,000-per-week deal with Villa.
