On Friday afternoon, it was being reported that Aston Villa were set to agree a £15million fee with Manchester City for talented young midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The Brazil Under 23 international skipper was named as the best player at this summer’s Toulon Tournament, but he has never got himself going at the Etihad as work permits were denied, so he’s spent the last two season’s out on loan with Girona which was much to Pep Guardiola’s annoyance apparently as he’d been signed as cover for Fernandinho.

I’ve not heard of him but it seems the 21-year-old would be our alternative option to the long speculated interest we have in Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

In any event, it seems that those who are aware of him in the fanbase are pretty excited by the idea of the deal going through this summer.

If this comes off, we look to the work permit issues and he’s another who will join us in our training camp in the US.
