DONE DEAL: Aston Villa sign permanently Barcelona midfielder Coutinho

Aston Villa have signed former Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho on a permanent deal from Barcelona.

The Brazilian, 29, moved to Villa Park on loan in January in a deal which included an option to buy at the end of the season.

He has now signed on a contract running until 2026 for 20m euros (£17m) and is understood to have taken a considerable wage cut from his deal in Spain.

"This is a brilliant signing for Aston Villa," said manager Steven Gerrard.

"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."
