Trabzonspor eyeing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba

Marvelous Nakamba is being linked with a surprise move from Aston Villa.

Sabah says the 26-year-old is a target for Trabzonspor.

He is the third Villa player to be linked with a move to Turkey by the press there, with Mbwana Samatta (Galatasaray) and Trezeguet (Besiktas) said to be interesting clubs over there.

Nakamba, would be a replacement for John Obi Mikel who terminated his deal with Trabzonspor last month.

Villa only signed Nakamba last year, one of their 12 new players brought in following Dean Smith's side's promotion to the Premier League through the Championship's play-offs. He cost €12 million from Club Brugge and has been a regular for the club, making 26 appearances in all competitions for the strugglers.
