Nakamba is at Luton up to the end of the season, on a six months loan deal from English Premier League side Aston Villa.

His loan came after Villa manager Unai Emery told him he was free to leave the club after falling down the pecking order in the team’s midfield department.

The defeat to Burnley was Luton’s first in five matches after having recored three wins and two draws.

Despite the defeat, Luton are fourth on the log table with 50 points, 22 behind table toppers Burnley after 32 matches.

However, they have a chance to get promoted into the English Premier League next season if they manage to maintain and secure a place in the Championship playoffs which is only played by the top six teams.
