After falling out of favour at Aston Villa resulting in his loan move to Luton Town FC, Warriors star Marvelous Nakamba is set to put a smile on his face once again.

It comes after the 28-year-old who is slowly reviving his career at Kenilworth Road is being highly appreciated and showered with praise by Luton fans.

In fact, the Sky Bet Championship side’s faithfuls have pleaded with the defensive midfielder to stay at the club.

They want him to put pen to paper to sign a permanent deal with the club when his five months loan deal which runs until end of the season expires.

Reacting to Nakamba’s tweet after last Saturday’s 1-0 win over Swansea City where the anchorman smothered the opponents in the midfield, playing a pivotal role to get the important victory, Luton fans thronged his Twitter handle.

One Luton fan said: “You’re definitely in my top two Marvs to play for Luton! Well done to our Zimbabwean Kante.”

After Swansea’s victory, wrote Luton Today: he [Nakamba] “finished top of the successful tackle count, with six to his name. It means he has the highest average per game among the Luton squad now, with 3.4, despite having only signed in January.

“The Zimbabwean international also used the ball tidily as well, with an 85.2% passing accuracy, although his shooting did let him down, firing one effort so far over the bar in the second period that it landed on the Kenny End roof.”
