Philippe Coutinho to leave Aston Villa and 8 other players to depart as things stand - transfer gallery
Philippe Coutinho looks set to leave to end his transfer disaster but which other Aston Villa players are expected to depart in the summer transfer window?
Aston Villa‘s big-name attacking midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, is looking likely to leave the club in the summer transfer window, as injury troubles have racked up and the Brazilian is unlikely to be part of Unai Emery’s plans going forward. On a sizeable salary following his £20 million move from Barcelona, a departure seems probable.
Coutinho, formerly of Liverpool and Bayern Munich, was an incredibly exciting addition when he initially joined on loan in January 2022, but things haven’t really worked out since. The 30-year-old netted five goals in 19 Premier League appearances throughout 2021-22 but only managed to score once after joining Villa permanently.
But Coutinho isn’t the only one expected to leave Villa Park this summer as there are a few contracts expiring and other players hoping to move on. With the transfer window still a few weeks away, there’s lots of uncertainty but we have a decent idea who might depart. Flick through the pages for a full run-through.
