Aston Villa have announced that they have reached an agreement for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.
Speculation has since persisted that other deals will be forthcoming, and the West Midlands outfit revealed on Thursday evening that they have agreed to sign highly-rated centre-back Carlos for a fee believed to be in the region of £26m.

The 29-year-old has been with Sevilla since 2019, making a total of 136 appearances across those three seasons and helping the Spanish outfit win the 2020 Europa League.
In January, the Brazilian was heavily linked with a switch to Newcastle United before both the player and his club opted to see out the campaign at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
