Douglas Luiz agrees Aston Villa move and Bjorn Engels also a target

The midfielder spent the last two seasons on loan at Spanish club Girona, where he made 36 appearances in two seasons but hasn't been able to make even a single appearance for his parent club, Manchester City.

Luiz is now on the move permanently and expected to complete a move to Villa before they face Minnesota United in America next week.

The FA refused to grant Luiz a work permit before the start of last season, much to the frustration of City.

Guardiola spoke glowingly about Luiz while away on tour previous year as he stood out in a squad packed full of other youngsters.

City are also understood to have inserted a buy-back clause.

However, there could be a work permit issue for Villa's new signing.

Charlie Baker lamented the state's failure to act and proposed new legislation to address the lax commercial drivers rules. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, the 23-year-old pickup truck driver arrested for allegedly causing the wreck, remains behind bars.

Luiz has represented the Brazilian U20 and U23 side and is now the captain of the Brazil U23 side.

Aston Villa's interest in the attacker is again backed up by Dirilis Postasi and they say the Premier League side have offered €10m for him.

The Gers coach hailed the signing as fantastic business by Aston Villa and tipped his hat towards Smith for identifying and swooping in for Luiz. A neat passer, Luiz completed 84.5% of his passes last season for Girona, who had a hard year, which ultimately ended in their relegation.

According to a claim in Turkey, Aston Villa target Trezeguet has informed his club Kasimpasa he wants a transfer in this window.

Should the Villans get the move for Luiz over the line, the Brazilian would join the likes of Wesley, Jota, Anwar El Ghazi, Tyrone Mings and Kortney Hause as new signings for Smith to use in their first season back in the Premier League.
