Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho set to move to Aston Villa on loan


Philippe Coutinho is reportedly set to join Aston Villa from Barcelona in a six-month loan deal.

That’s according to The Athletic, who claim Villa boss Gerard is the ‘key factor’ in Brazil International’s decision to return to the Premier League.

A number of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle and Everton, have been linked with a move for Coutinho, but Gerrard – who played alongside the 29-year-old at Liverpool – has persuaded him to move to Villa Park.
