Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard confirmed he wants Philippe Coutinho to stay at the club past the end of the season when his loan deal expires.

The Brazilian was left out of Villa’s starting XI on Saturday as Gerrard’s men won 3-1 at relegation-threatened Burnley in the Premier League.

Coutinho did come on late as a substitute and Gerrard was asked about the Barcelona loanee after the win at Turf Moor.
