Aston Villa sign Philippe Coutinho on loan until the end of the season

Aston Villa has confirmed the signing of Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season. The agreement is subject to a work permit and a medical comes with an option to buy at the end of the season. Villa will pay a part of the Brazilian’s wages Barcelona announced. The player was interested in a return to England with Villa being an ambitious club with a new manager. Coutinho played with Gerrard for two and a half years during his time with Liverpool. Coutinho joined Barcelona for a club-record £146m in January 2018 but has not been able to nail down a place in the first team.

“Sixty-three caps for Brazil, a serial winner, was incredible at Liverpool, so I can understand why he’s linked to a lot of football clubs,” Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard said about Philippe Coutinho. “I can understand why a lot of supporters up and down the country are speaking about him. I don’t think you get a nickname as a magician if you’re not a special footballer, so he’s someone I have an incredible amount of respect for. But I don’t want to add to any speculation, because he belongs to Barcelona.”
