Aston Villa have agreed a deal to sign Brazil centre-back Diego Carlos from Sevilla for 26 Million pounds.

The 29-year-old, who Newcastle United tried to sign in January, will travel to England on Thursday for a medical and to finalise personal terms.

He would be Villa’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Boubacar Kamara from Marseille on a free transfer.

Carlos played six times at last year’s Tokyo Olympics where Brazil won gold.

Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard recently confirmed central defender Ezri Konsa would miss the start of the upcoming season because of a knee injury.

Villa, who finished 14th in the English Premier League last season, also completed a deal for Philippe Coutinho to join on a four-year contract from Barcelona earlier in May.
