Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT that Birmingham City have made a "good offer" to sign former Chelsea captain John Terry on a free transfer, and said that the 36-year-old is still good enough to "play for anybody".
Terry is to leave Chelsea when his contract runs out at the end of this month.
Adding a player like Terry with his experience and winning mentality could be key, as he collected five league titles, a Champions League and five FA Cup trophies during his spell at Stamford Bridge to establish himself as a legend at the club.
Villa are believed to have increased their offer to Terry as the two clubs offer and counter-offer to land the centre back, with Villa manager Steve Bruce also viewing the former England worldwide as a key addition.
A leader like Terry could be just what Steve Bruce's men need in their quest to get back to English football's top tier after a year out of the Premier League.
Both clubs have wealthy Chinese backers, meaning Terry could be the big victor here if the two clubs continue to increase their offers, with a drop into the Championship looking increasingly likely right now.
It is easy to see why Terry continues to attract interest, even though he is now in the twilight of his career.
