Former Bantu Rovers (Zimbabwe) academy player Marvelous Nakamba has signed with Aston Villa of the English Premier League for a 10M+/- GBP transfer from Club Brugge (Belgium). Nakamba, 25, will join his former Club Brugge teammates Wesley and Bjorn Engels at Villa as the EPL newcomers have raided the Belgian club this summer.
“I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League – and against the best players in the world in the Premier League. It’s the best league in the world. It’s always been a dream for me to play in the Premier League and to be competing against the best players in the world,” Nakamba said. “I will be trying my best, of course – and I will give everything. I give everything for the team every time. That’s who I am. I fight for the team. I care about helping the team. You will see that.”
The Zimbabwe international is a destructive force in central midfield and he will add a little bit of balance to Villa’s engine room given the mercurial attacking talents of Grealish and McGinn. Smith describes him as being “very mobile, very good in possession and he will fit in with our style of play.”
