Following Aston Villa’s capture of Wesley Moraes, we were linked with a return to Club Brugge for midfielder Marvelous Nakamba but almost as soon as the speculation surfaced, it seemed to disappear again.

With the 25-year-old Zimbabwe midfielder finishing his international action this summer, over the weekend the speculation exploded back to life with claims that he had refused to return to his parent club for pre-season training as he was intent on pushing through the transfer to B6.

Has Rumoured Target Gone On Strike To Force Through Villa Move – Not A Great Start Really

For me this instantly cast doubt on our interest in the player as going on strike, if true, is certainly not the ‘all about me’ attitude we want given the spirit that was fostered last season and I clearly wasn’t alone.

It did cause some discussion on the Vital Villa Forum though as plenty were unconcerned by the reports, simply seeing it as modern football and rather than worrying about his future antics at Villa, we just had to accept we were still a stepping stone, just like Club Brugge.

Whilst I more than get the counterpoint, there are ways of pushing through a deal in a more respectful manner and it still leaves a bad taste for me.
