LONDON, UK -Luton Town’s latest rumour on transfer deadline day has seen Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba linked with a love move to Kenilworth Road ahead of this evening’s 11pm cut-off point.

The 29-year-old Zimbabwean international, who has won 26 caps for his country, started out with French side Nancy, before going to Vitesse Arnhem in July 2014.

A £4m transfer to Club Brugge followed in July 2017, as he then headed to England to join Aston Villa in August 2019, for a fee of £11m.

Warriors midfielder Marvelous Nakamba is reported to be having a medical ahead of signing on for England’s Championship side Luton on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Nakamba has been looking for a new club after he was told by Aston Villa boss Unai Emery to leave.

He has been linked with a number of sides including another Championship side West Brom but Birmingham Mail has reported this morning that Nakamba is headed for Luton.

He still has 18 months left on his contract with Aston Villa and after his loan spell he will be looking to make a permanent transfer elsewhere.

The 29 year old has not featured in a single Premier League match this season and last appeared for the team on the last day of the 2021-22 campaign when Villa squandered a 2-0 leave to lose 3-2 to Manchester City.

Nakamba joined Aston Villa in 2019 from Belgian giants Club Brugge and enjoyed game time under Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard.

He helped the team survive relegation in the 2019-20 season and was reported to have attracted the interest of Crystal Palace, Everton and Newcastle.

Nakamba would probably relish a chance to fight for a Premier League place with Luton, who have been doing will in the second tier.They currently sit seventh on the table, one place below the play-off spot even though they have the same number of points with Norwich who are above them.
