MARVELOUS Nakamba has been told by his Aston Villa coach Unai Emery to pack his bags and leave.
“In other positions as well we are speaking about how we can improve, some players like (Marvelous) Nakamba, I told him to leave,” said Emery at a press conference on Thursday.
“(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.
“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.”
Nakamba whom Emery wants to leave this January is yet to make an appearances for Villa this season.
He has only made the cut to the match day squad nine times in 19 games.
The Zimbabwe international has made 58 Premier League appearances for the Clarets and Blue since joining from Belgian side Club Brugge in 2020.
His contract with Villa expires in June 2024.
