Philippe Coutinho Makes Premier League Return, Joins Aston Villa On Loan

Philippe Coutinho has agreed to join Aston Villa on a six-month loan with the option to buy in the summer.

The 29-year-old Brazilian playmaker will rejoin Steven Gerrard, a former Liverpool teammate who currently coaches the Midlands club.

Coutinho had been linked with a number of Premier League clubs after failing to establish himself as a regular starter at Barcelona following his £140 million transfer from Liverpool in 2018.

“The agreement, which is subject to the player completing a medical and receiving a work permit, also includes an option to buy and Philippe will travel to Birmingham in the next 48 hours.”
