Philippe Coutinho is joining Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season from Barcelona.

As part of the loan deal, Coutinho also has an option to buy the midfielder from Aston Villa.

He will join up with Villa boss Steven Gerrard, who he played with at Liverpool, once he has completed his medicals and received a work permit.

A statement read: “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.”

Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool for £146million in 2018 but has struggled to find form at the Nou Camp, spending 2019-20 on loan at Bayern Munich.

The Brazilian scored 28 goals in 105 appearances and helped them win LaLiga twice.
