Nakamba’s Villa exit looming: Star reportedly set to leave in January

Warriors midfielder Marvelous Nakamba will reportedly be shown the exit door by Aston Villa during the January transfer window.

The 28-year old former Club Brugge man has not featured for the Claret and Blue this campaign, having fallen down the pecking order under sacked manager Steven Gerrard.

The arrival of freshly-recruited Spaniard Unai Emery has not resulted in any change of fortunes for the Hwange-bred midfield enforcer, who, according to reports, is one of the eight players expected to leave the club next January.

“Unai Emery has already confirmed that there’s business to be done in the January transfer window which will open in a little over six weeks. The head coach has spoken to Nassef Sawiris, Wes Edens, Christian Purslow and Johan Lange about adding one or two to his squad ahead of the five-month, end-of-season run-in,” wrote club correspondent Ashley Preece for The Birmingham Mail.

“Again, like Sanson, Nakamba’s found himself knocked down Villa’s midfield pecking order. The Zimbabwean, named Villa’s player of the month this time last year, is yet to feature this season. Nakamba, you feel, needs a new challenge.”

Nakamba joined Aston Villa from Club Brugge in 2019 and signed a 5-year contact which expires in June  2024.

  1. I think he should have joined Gatalasray some months ago.l am sure he was going to have a good game there.

  2. he stil have unfinished business in midfield, both club nd country – that guy is an enforcer.

    hop he finds a club where he can enjoy his game, wishing the best for him in the jan transfer.


  3. He needs to up his game. He literally offers nothing with the ball, that’s why all managers are not playing him. He’s just not good enough….I’m sorry ta say this

  4. Nooo..Nakamba..needs to search for a developing team like Norwich city …so that he can perform well

  5. Nakamba needs to search clubs like Norwich Cardiff Watford QPR Bournemouth he can play coz it’s only abt 4-5 season left in his career

  6. Nakamba is not yet finished,he gonna go to some teams like Bournemouth,Coventry city etc.He should remain in England.

  7. U made history by becoming the only player from Southern Africa playing in English premiership.Its almost 5 years playing in there it is good.I still remember U played against Liverpool and Villa won and u played that game.Nw just accept things come and go. Find another club especially in English premiership
