Now, after completing his move, Luiz claimed he wants to be a “leader” for Villa and help them “win a lot of games”.

Luiz claimed: “Today is a really happy moment in my life and career.

“I hope I can be a leader in the team and hope I can help by bringing the ball out from the back.

“Although I don’t speak a lot of English, I hope I can help out by shouting orders from the back.

“I hope I can live up to all the expectations as best as I can and hope we have a great season and win lots of games.”

Meanwhile, boss Dean Smith couldn’t hide his excitement, saying: “Douglas is an extremely talented young player with an outstanding pedigree.

“I am sure he will fit nicely into our style and system of play.”
