Marvelous Nakamba

Nakamba ‘waiting for phone call’ from Villa

LUTON Town loanee Marvelous Nakamba says he is waiting on his parent club Aston Villa to give him direction in terms of his immediate future ahead of his return to Zimbabwe for the off-season break after his loan spell with The Hatters ended with promotion glory at Wembley over the weekend.

Nakamba joined Rob Edwards’ Luton in January and spent the second half of the season in the Championship — but they’ll be in the top flight next term.

Nakamba will now await further instruction from Villa about what his future might hold, and indeed whether Luton are keen to pursue a permanent arrangement with Villa, if he isn’t to be a part of Emery’s wider plans upon his return.

For now, after a period of celebrating with Town, he intends to return to his native Zimbabwe and continue the excellent work of his Foundation. “This week I will be celebrating, and then I will go home to Zimbabwe to be with my Foundation, doing things like helping the kids and motivating the kids back home,” Nakamba told BirminghamLive.

“I expect to spend most of the off-season being at home with my Foundation. “It’s the only time I can use, this off-season, where I can be with those children, where I can share the happy moments with them. I will certainly celebrate the first week, maybe the second week I will be there with them. For now, it’s all about Luton Town going up.

“I’ve not had any discussions with Unai yet. Villa have only just had their last game, and I have only just finished my season here. Only God knows the future, hopefully it’s for the best. I still have a contract there, I will just see.

Now is the time to celebrate, but I will wait for the phone call, or an email, from my agent or from Aston Villa. “Wherever I am next season, God only knows, but I will just keep doing my best.” —BirminghamLive
