“Philippe Coutinho’s set to join Aston Villa on loan from Barcelona, done deal and here-we-go! Agreement completed after direct contact today morning.” Said Fabrizio Romano.

According to the agreement, Aston Villa will pay about 65% of Coutinho’s salary at Barcelona something that was welcomed by the Spaniards.

The deal comes hours after Premier League rivals Newcastle joined the race to sign the Brazilian as they looked forward strengthening their squad ahead of the coming season.

Newcastle has already signed Kieran Trippier on a permanent move from Atletico Madrid sending a warning message to fellow Premier League clubs of a tough season next year.
