The same day that Marvelous Nakamba was rumoured to be in England for a Villa medical, the club announced Douglas Luiz has signed pending a work permit.
News broke on Thursday from the Telegraph’s John Percy that Aston Villa have agreed a fee of around £11 million for the capture of 25-year-old Zimbabwean defensive midfielder Marvelous Nakamba from Club Brugge.
A couple of days have passed since the capture of Ezri Konsa was announced on the official channels. The 21-year-old centre-half signed from Dean Smith’s former club Brentford for a fee purported to be around £12m.
When it comes to transfers there will often be a difference of opinion among the fan base; whether or not the player will be a right fit for the club, the fee might be debated or perhaps the player’s wage or length of contract. Yet in the case of Tyrone Mings, there will be no such dialogue (at least not from me) – the player and club are made for one another.
Matt Targett has today joined the club from Southampton for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £14m.
