Zimbabwean footballer Marvelous Nakamba may be sold by English Premier League club Aston Villa where he has fallen down the pecking order.
Reports suggest that the 28-year-old Hwange-born footballer is one of four players who have been transfer-listed by the Steven Gerrard-coached side.
Nakamba has failed to make the match-day squad for Villa’s first two league matches where they lost to Bournemouth on the opening day before beating Everton at the weekend.
According to the Daily Mirror, Nakamba, Frederic Guilbert, Anwar El Ghazi, Bertrand Traore and Keinan Davis have been transfer-listed by Aston Villa. Reported the Newspaper:
Villa are reportedly welcoming ‘offers’ for a number of players including Zimbabwean international Marvelous Nakamba according to The Athletic.
They say Nakamba joins Frederic Guilbert, Anwar El Ghazi, Bertrand Traore and Keinan Davis on a list of players that the hierarchy at the club would welcome “offers” for ahead of the end of the summer transfer window on September 1st.
Nakamba (28) featured heavily after Gerrard was appointed to the role of Villa boss last November.
The midfielder started all five of his first games in charge of the club, before being forced off after 57 minutes against Liverpool due to a severe knee injury.
Nakamba would go on to make his return to action five months later, but he has since been usurped at Villa Park following the arrival of summer signing (Boubacar) Kamara.
Aston Villa signed France midfielder Kamara from Marseille. He is one of five signings made by Gerrard.
