S02 E60: Diego Carlos Signs For Aston Villa. Guest: Sam Tighe, Ranks FC podcast

Aston Villa have attacked the summer transfer window at speed. Steven Gerrard’s side have completed the signing of Coutinho from Barcelona and swiftly followed that up with the free transfer of Boubacar Kamara and the £28 million purchase of Diego Carlos.

In this episode, we focus on Carlos. The highly-rated Brazilian defender joins from La Liga’s Sevilla, where he won the Europa League. Carlos also helped form the best defence in the Spanish top division last season.

We spoke to football journalist and Ranks FC podcaster, Sam Tighe, about Carlos. Does he improve Villa’s defence and could he threaten Tyrone Mings’ starting spot?
