More than a week has passed since Marvellous Nakamba’s expected return to training with Belgian giants Club Brugge and the Warriors midfielder is still missing in action.

The 25-year-old’s ‘self imposed exiled’ is on account of his desire to join English Premier League returnees Aston Villa and is reportedly frustrated by Brugge’s reluctance to accept Villa’s £11 million offer.

Het Nieuwsblad, a Belgian outlet, confirmed that Nakamba still hasn’t reported for training.

“The midfielder has been illegally absent for a week now, hoping to force a transfer like this.

“Aston Villa is interested and, according to the entourage of the player an agreement would soon be found between the English and Club Brugge, which wants twelve million euros for the Zimbabwean.
