Aston Villa manager, Unai Emery, has said that he has told Zimbabwe international, Marvelous Nakamba, that he can leave the club in the current transfer window.

Other players expected to leave Villa Park include Ludwig Augustinsson and Morgan Sanson.

Emery is in the process of putting his own stamp on the squad in the January transfer window and the Zimbabwean is part of the players told to consider their future elsewhere.

Nakamba has struggled for game time since the arrival of the new manager, and his future at the club has always been subject to speculation.

“In other positions as well we are speaking about how we can improve, some players like (Marvelous) Nakamba, I told him to leave,” he said in his pre-match press conference.

“(Morgan) Sanson as well is in the possibility to leave, but Sanson for me is a very good player, he understands very good how we want to play and he has the skill to do it, but he has to play in a team to be consistent, trying to play more and here it’s difficult to give him it – he is as well finding something to leave.

“If they are leaving – Nakamba, Sanson, maybe we try to add one player more inside, inside midfielder. It’s not clear about this possibility because I want to sign one player (who will) improve the quality of the squad.”

Villa have been linked with an interest in Marseille midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, who plays the same position with Nakamba. – ZTN Correspondent/Birmingham Mail
