In official football news from the January transfer window, Aston Villa have confirmed signing Philippe Coutinho on a 6-month loan. The former Liverpool playmaker thus reunites with his old team-mate Steven Gerrard.

Villa have announced the signing of Coutinho from Barcelona for half a year, and will retain an option to buy.

He previously starred in the Premier League across five years at Anfield. His subsequent move to Barcelona was a failure and he now seeks to rediscover the spark he lost in Catalunya.

And now, the Brazil international will see out the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign at Villa Park.

Coutinho will be hoping to pick up where he left off, with Steven Gerrard as his coach rather than teammate.

Aston Villa finalized a deal for Phillipe Coutinho on Tuesday, releasing a video on social media to unveil the star.

Their new Brazilian player, who saw persistent links to the Premier League (football transfers), will be wearing the No 23 shirt.

The club previously announced the impending arrival in a statement which 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 also includes an option to buy.”
