Aston Villa have made their tenth signing this summer as Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz has joined from Manchester City.
The Villans, who won promotion back to the Premier League last season, have landed Luiz for an undisclosed fee.
Luiz, 21, joined City from hometown club Vasco da Gama in 2017, but he never featured for Pep Guardiola’s side and spent the last two seasons on loan at Spanish side Girona.
Villa boss Dean Smith added: “Douglas is an extremely talented young player with an outstanding pedigree, who I am sure will fit nicely into our style and system of play.”
Luiz played a key role as Brazil Under-21s won the Toulon Tournament last month and was named player of the tournament.
