Douglas Luiz looks set to complete a transfer to Aston Villa.

Douglas Luiz of Girona FC looks on during the La Liga match between Sevilla FC and Girona FC at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on December 16, 2018 in Seville, Spain.

It would appear as if the personal trainer of Aston Villa target Douglas Luiz has confirmed that his client is heading to the West Midlands.

According to The Telegraph, Aston Villa will be paying around £15 million for the Manchester City starlet, whom The Express and Star reported would be joining 'within the coming days'.

But that was Wednesday and there hasn't been much talk about it since.

However, it appears as if it's effectively a done deal after his personal trainer at Futperformance sent a message on Instagram that translates to: "Let's go with everything, Premier League awaits you."

 

Interestingly, he also tagged Aston Villa's official account in the post.

If and when it happens, Luiz will be Aston Villa's ninth summer signing of what's been a fantastic transfer window for Dean Smith.

The acquisition of Bjorn Engels took the Villans' spending to exactly £100 million this week, but it looks poised to hit the £115 million-mark now when they sign the 21-year-old City prospect.

Smith's side kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Tottenham on August 10.

Douglas Luiz of Girona FC looks on during the La Liga match between RC Celta de Vigo and Girona FC at Abanca-Balaídos on April 20, 2019 in Vigo, Spain.
