Nakamba To Luton Town – Done Deal: Birmingham Live
Luton Town Nearing Permanent Signing of Marvelous Nakamba from Aston Villa
According to reports, Luton Town is edging closer to securing a deal with Aston Villa for the permanent signing of Marvelous Nakamba. The 29-year-old midfielder had a successful loan spell with the Hatters last season, playing a pivotal role in their campaign to secure promotion to the Premier League. Luton Town clinched their return to the top flight by defeating Coventry City 6-5 on penalties in the Wembley final play-off in May.

It appears that Villa had no plans to reintegrate Nakamba into their squad for the upcoming season, paving the way for a potential agreement between Villa and Luton. The Telegraph reports that a deal for Nakamba’s transfer could be finalized within the next 48 hours.
Following their promotion, Luton Town made Nakamba their primary target, with manager Rob Edwards expressing his admiration for the Zimbabwean player. Edwards previously commented, “He’s been brilliant. I often joke about it, but I genuinely mean it too. I keep telling everyone, including the players, that he’s my favourite player in world football at the moment.”
