Douglas Luiz has signed a new long-term contract at Aston Villa ending all talks about a possible transfer this summer.

The 24-year-old midfielder who joined Villa in 2019 was heavily linked with a move to Premier League leaders, Arsenal during the transfer window.

“I’m so happy,” the Brazilian international who won a gold medal with his country at the 2020 Olympics said after signing the long-term contract.

“I’m so happy in this club and I love this club. I love the people here, the staff and the players,” he said.


“I’m so comfortable here and I’m so happy.”

The Brazilian, who has nine caps for his country, has been a mainstay of the Villa team since the club’s return to the Premier League.

And Luiz is looking forward to playing a part in helping Villa to progress in the future.

“I love this club. This club opened the door for me when I came to England to play in the Premier League,” he said.

“I’m so happy because I’m staying here and my choice is here.”
