All the transfers from Premier League for Philippe Coutinho have been ruled out after his agent Kia Joorabchian confirms that the player will continue at FC Barcelona.

According to talkSPORT, Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian has confirmed to the news outlet that his client will continue at the Blaugrana club. Coutinho returned to Barcelona in the first week of September after winning the treble with the German giants Bayern Munich.

On Tuesday’s White and Jordan show by talkSPORT, the super agent was asked about his client’s continuity.

“Koeman called him right after the Champions League victory with Bayern, the following day, and told him he’s very much in his plans and would like him to return”, he told the host Jim White.

“He was due to return on September 7 but actually he returned at the beginning of September because he didn’t want to lose his momentum and fitness, and now he’s been training with Barcelona.”

“All signs point to the fact that Barcelona has changed quite dramatically. They are looking to give much more importance to the players they have brought, like Coutinho, Griezmann and Dembélé.”
