Marvelous Nakamba is ‘99 per cent’ certain to join Luton Town on a permanent basis from Aston Villa after Rob Edwards’ side were promoted to the Premier League.


So says a source close to the former Club Brugge
midfielder, speaking to Zimbabwean’s H Metro.
Marvelous Nakamba fell out of favour at Aston
Villa following the signings of Boubacar Kamara and
Leander Dendoncker last summer, but was a man
reborn after moving to Luton on loan during the
January transfer window.
Nakamba did not miss a single minute in the play-
offs, featuring for the full 120 as The Hatters defeated
Coventry City at Wembley.

“He’s brilliant isn’t he. He’s absolutely brilliant,”
Kenilworth Road team-mate Tom Lockyer told Luton
“(Nakamba) has been fantastic. He’s such a nice guy
off the pitch and then, on the pitch, I just need to tell
him where I want him, keep talking to him – ‘left or
right, go here, press here, do this’ – and then just let
him go.
Aston “And when he does go, it’s brilliant to see.
“He just tackles anything in sight. He has been one
hell of a signing. I’m not sure who got him in in
January, but I’d give them a little bottle of red or
something as it makes my job a lot easier!”
Marvelous Nakamba leaving Aston Villa

With just one year left on his contract, and with Aston
Villa looking to bring in Tyler Adams from relegated
Leeds United, Unai Emery is unlikely to stand in
Nakamba’s way as Luton look to turn his loan deal
into a permanent transfer.

“The deal is now almost done,” the source explains. “I
will say it is now at 99 per cent.”

“What is only left is the completion of the paperwork.
But Nakamba has made it clear he doesn’t want to be
anywhere else next season, besides Luton.”
