Nakamba debut delayed again

The wait continues for Zimbabwe international Marvelous Nakamba’s Aston Villa debut, as he is not in the match day squad for tonight’s Premier League game against Everton.

Nakamba, who made the switch from Belgian giants Club Brugge for a reported £12 million, has not appeared for the Premier League returnees in an official game so far.

Villa coach Dean Smith explained this week that the Warriors midfielder is “still a bit off” in as far as fitness is  concerned.

Nakamba played for Zimbabwe at AFCON 2019 but took part in only one game, the 1-0 defeat to Egypt, and the delay in the confirmation of his move to Villa Park resulted in him not having a full pre-season.
