But the Football Association launched an investigation after a number of bets were placed on the substitution taking place.

The FA’s integrity department has now decided neither Chelsea nor Terry have any case to answer.

The defender – who moved to B6 on a free over the summer – will make his competitive Villa debut when they face Hull City on the opening day of the Championship season on Saturday (August 5th).
