Aston Villa ready to seal large coup by signing Manchester City-younger Douglas Luiz for £ 15m to bring their summer spending beyond £ 100m!
- Pep Guardiola was furious last year when Douglas was refused permission from Luiz
- Luiz is now permanently on the move and is ready to to complete the move to Aston Villa
- Manchester City places a redemption clause in the deal for the 21-year-old
- Villa also had discussions with Reims to bring Bjorn English to England
Luiz is now on the move and expects to complete the move to Villa before facing Minnesota United in America next week.
Villa thinks they will get a work permit and Sportsmail understands that City is inserting a buy-back clause in the 21-year-old deal.
The Premier League champions did the same with the sale of Angelino to PSV Eindhoven last summer and the left back continued – joins the club earlier this month.
Luiz spent two seasons in Girona after his move from Vasco da Gama, starring in his victory away at Real Madrid in February.
Guardiola spoke glowingly about Luiz while on tour last year when he stood out in a team full of other young people.
Villa also has g talks with Reims about Bjorn Engels.
The newly promoted party want to boost their defense with the signing of Engels, the old target for boss Dean Smith.
Smith tried to get him while he was the manager of Brentford last year and has returned for the 24-year-old.
Engels would join Kortney Hause, Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa as new center backers at the club.
