What’s Next For Nakamba?8 months ago
Zimbabwean midfielder Marvelous Nakamba is talking to some clubs after Aston Villa manager Unai Emery told him to leave the English Premier League side.
The 29-year old Hwange-bred star has struggled for game time at Villa this season and hasn’t featured in a competitive game —a setback which has resulted in his departure from the Birmingham-based club somewhat inevitable.
Last week, Emery openly told Nakamba to leave the club, and a source close to the soft-spoken star said he is in search of a new team which guarantees him game time.
Said the source:
“He is talking to some clubs.”
“His is strongly mentally and just needs to go to a cub which gives him game time. He is calm about the situation and soon he will be doing what he loves the most, which is to play football.
Nakamba’s contract at Villa ends in 2024.
If he is to leave Villa, the Warriors midfielder has until 31 January (the end of the current transfer window) to find a new home.
Should there be no suitors for Nakamba while Villa insist on showing him the exit door, the club may pay up his full contract to 2024 and allow him to leave as a free agent.
