Aston Villa: Steven Gerrard reveals he is ready to make more signings

Steven Gerrard reveals Aston Villa are ready to make more signings as new arrivals Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne could make their debuts against Manchester United

  • Aston Villa secured Philippe Coutinho on loan until the end of the season 
  • The Midlands outfit also signed Lucas Digne from Everton for a fee of £25million
  • The new arrivals could make their debuts against Man United on Saturday 
  • But boss Steven Gerrard has said that the club is ready to make more signings 


Steven Gerrard says Aston Villa are ready to make further signings this month, following the capture of Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne.

Villa have made the most waves in the January transfer window so far by bringing in Gerrard’s former Liverpool team-mate on loan from Barcelona before paying £25million to sign Digne from Everton

Ahead of Saturday’s clash with Manchester United, in which both players could make their debut, Gerrard said he is keen to add a central midfielder and a centre back before the window closes.

‘There might be opportunities again,’ he said. ‘It is steel and style we are looking for. 

‘Can we find that level of player who is going to improve the team, or do we need cover for injuries or suspension?

‘I like to have four centre backs and we only have three, so we are analysing that situation.’

Coutinho appears likely to be named among the substitutes as he returns to the Premier League four years after joining Barcelona from Liverpool for £146m.

But Digne may be included from the off as he played regularly for Everton this season before his relationship with manager Rafael Benitez deteriorated.
