Philippe Coutinho set to join AstonVilla on loan from Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho’s set to join Aston Villa on loan from Barcelona, Official statement now confirms: “The agreement also includes an option to buy clause and Philippe will travel to Birmingham in the next 48 hours”.

Coutinho will be in England as soon as possible in order to finish his move on a 6-month loan. Aston Villa will pay the major part of the salary and so Barcelona is able to register Ferrán Torres.

Coutinho had three approaches from UK clubs but his ex teammate Steven Gerrard was a ‘key factor’ to join Aston Villa this winter.

As it stands, Coutinho’s loan is not enough to generate the necessary space in order to register Ferran Torres.
