Coutinho moves to Aston Villa until the end of the season

Aston Villa officially announced on Friday the signing of Brazilian Coutinho from Barcelona until the end of the season on loan.

An official statement from Aston Villa said: ” Aston Villa and Barcelona agreed on terms of Coutinho’s transfer on loan until the end of the season.” Aston Villa confirmed that the agreement included a buy option, indicating that the player will move to Birmingham within 48 hours.

Coutinho has not been able to perform well with Barcelona since his move from Liverpool in 2018 and was loaned to Bayern Munich for one season but the Bayern did not activate the buy option then. Aston Villa are managed by legend Steven Gerrard who was a teammate with Coutinho at Liverpool. Aston Villa are 13th in the English Premier League but do not appear to be threatened with relegation this season.
