Marvelous Nakamba joins Luton Town on loan from Aston Villa

Sky Bet Championship team Luton Town have announced the loan signing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba for the remainder of the season.

Villa manager Unai Emery made it clear Nakamba was not part of his plans and advised him to leave the club last week.

Nakamba began his career in Zimbabwe before he signed for French side Nancy at the age of 18 after a successful trial in 2012.

Two years later, he played his first match as a professional, starting in a 3-1 home win against Angers. After two appearances for the Ligue 2 outfit, Nakamba signed for Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem on a four-year-deal.

The defensive midfielder established himself in Vitesse’s starting eleven during the 2015-16 campaign, and within that same year made his international debut for Zimbabwe.

To date, following his first cap against Malawi, he has represented his country 26 times including at the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017 and once in 2019.
