The Premier League club said in a statement: “Aston Villa and FC Barcelona have agreed terms for Philippe Coutinho to spend the rest of this season on loan at Villa Park.

“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.”

Former Liverpool teammate of Philippe Coutinho (2031-2015), the new Aston Villa coach has used his networks and good memories with the Brazilian to bring him to Aston Villa.

In the last couple of days, there were many transfer rumours that Coutinho could join Aston Villa and now it’s official.

Coutinho tested positive for COVID-19 last week but should be cleared to fly to England in the coming days and could come into contention for Villa’s Premier League game against Manchester United on January 15.
