Transfers Coutinho leaves Aston Villa to join Brazilian club Vasco da Gama

Philippe Coutinho has joined Brazilian side Vasco da Gama on a season-long loan from Aston Villa.

The 32-year-old spent last season playing for Al-Duhail in Qatar having fallen out of favour at Villa Park, making just two substitute appearances last term before being loaned out.

He has two years remaining on the deal he signed when joining from Barcelona in 2022 for £17million, a fraction of the record £142m the La Liga side paid in order to sign him from Liverpool four years earlier.

He has scored six goals in 43 games for Villa. Meanwhile, Bournemouth have signed forward Daniel Jebbison from Sheffield United on a four-year deal.

The 20-year-old made a single Premier League appearance for the Blades last season having previously spent time on loan at Burton and non-league Chorley.

He moves to the Vitality Stadium following the expiration of his contract at Bramall Lane.
