Aston Villa sign Philippe Coutinho on permanent transfer amid Newcastle United links

By Matty Hewitt

Aston Villa have completed the signing of Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho. The midfielder has signed a four-year deal at Villa Park after originally joining the Premier League club on loan.

There had been speculation suggesting Newcastle could hijack the deal this summer, but Aston Villa reportedly had first refusal. Steven Gerrard's side have chosen to take up the option and Coutinho will play in the Premier League once more next season.

The 29-year-old has scored four goals and contributed three assists so far this season and has signed for the Villains for an undisclosed fee.

Head Coach Steven Gerrard said: “This is a brilliant signing for Aston Villa. Phil is a model professional and his impact on the group has been very clear since he joined in January.

“With the way he conducts himself on and off the pitch, he’s also a valuable role model for our younger players who can only benefit from his experience. As we look to build towards next season, it is incredible to work at a club that executes its business so decisively and smoothly.”
