Couto, who has a contract with Manchester City, has never played for the first team. He spent last season on loan at Braga, as they progressed to the Europa League semi-finals.
The Brazilian defender scored one goal and contributed four assists last season during his spell at Braga.
Couto’s last spell at Girona was in La Liga but the club are now back in La Liga. The City defender can play on the right wing and right midfield, and did so a few times for Braga last season.
Many clubs wanted Couto’s signature in this window, including Marseille and Olympiakos, but it seems the player has opted to return to Girona and try to claim a return to City’s first team next season.
