Marvelous Nakamba listed among six players set to be sold by Aston Villa
Zimbabwe Warriors central midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has been put on a list of six players that are likely set to be sold by Aston Villa in the summer.
This was revealed in an article published by Birmingham Live on Tuesday.
According to the article: “Nakamba will be allowed to leave in the summer. He joined Luton Town on loan last month after failing to make a single Premier League appearance in the first half of the season. Nakamba will enter the final year of his deal in the summer.”
The former Bantu Rovers midfielder was loaned by Villa to English Championship outfit Luton Town FC until end of season.
He fell out of favour at the club and his situation was worsened when manager Unai Emery revealed during a pre-match media briefing that he told him (Nakamba) he was free to leave the club.
Nakamba joined Villa in 2019 from Club Brugge and signed a five year deal which is set to expire on 30 June in 2024.
However, Luton Town could be the new home for the 28-year-old midfielder who seems to be settling well at the club.
He has made two appearances for Luton so far since completing his deadline day move on January 31.
Nakamba made his debut two weeks ago when he was introduced as a second half substitute in Luton’s 1-0 victory over Stoke City before making his first start for the club this past Saturday.
Already, he has impressed the gaffer Rob Edwards who likened him to a Duracell battery after playing his first full 90 minutes since December 2021.
