John Terry is under consideration to join Aston Villa's coaching staff as a number two, but any possible appointment remains dependent on the identity of their new boss, according to Sky sources.
It is understood that the Villa hierarchy will not impose backroom staff on the new head coach.
The 37-year-old won five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, the Champions League, Europa League and three League Cups with Chelsea but spent the final season of his career at Villa Park before leaving in the summer.
Bruce was sacked by Villa last week after two years in the job, and following one win in 10 matches.
Villa bosses, however, do retain an interest in the possibility of Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers taking over, with an initial shortlist of five names now whittled down to Henry and the Northern Irishman.
However, Rodgers appeared to distance himself from the vacancy on Sunday after his side's win at St Johnstone.
