Aston Villa: Fans react as Pep Guardiola not planning Douglas Luiz return - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have responded to a report that claims Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will not activate a buy-back clause for midfielder Douglas Luiz.

The Brazilian midfielder moved to Villa Park last summer from Manchester City and had a superb season with Dean Smith’s side, featuring in 36 Premier League games which saw him score three goals and gain two assists.

Such performances have since seen reports emerge that former club City, who have a buy-back clause available to use, were keen to activate it.

However, Martin Blackburn from The Sun has now claimed that Citizens boss Guardiola has no plans to make such a move.

The 22-year-old originally joined City in 2017, spending time away from the Etihad Stadium to continue his development with Spanish side Girona until last summer.

Valued at £19.8m by Transfermarkt, the Brazil international is expected to continue playing a large part in Dean Smith’s Villa side next term.

Reacting to the news which was shared by Twitter account @villareport, fans gave their opinion with many delighted that it appears the midfielder will remain at Villa Park.
