Nakamba ‘will do everything’ to make the transfer happen. Aston Villa are thought to be annoyed at Club Brugge ‘flip-flopping’ their stance on Nakamba’s transfer.Marvellous Nakamba feels Club Brugge have ‘disrespected’ him by not accepting Aston Villa’s bid of €10m. [le soir]

This Marvellous Nakamba rumour is picking up again. “Apparently” feels his club have disrespected him by moving the goalposts on a transfer to us. So now he’s refusing to train.
Sounds like an arsehole.

How much of all of this is true is up for debate but you can imagine behind the scenes clubs constantly fucking around AKA posturing and negotiating to change fees, prices, terms, not just with a buyer but with players and agents. I’m sure we do it too. In a world where video games makes it easy to buy and sell players, and in a time of 24/7 news updates where little actually happens probably why it feels like it takes forever sometimes.

We don’t know that though. He could be or his club might be.

Sounds a bit like the Benteke situation.

Are the Villa transfer negotiating team in the USA or the UK? Engels deal has gone quiet?

I don't agree with players refusing to do their job to force deals. Unless it's a case where they're being actively mistreated by a club, there is no excuse for basically going on strike. Mad stuff considering how well paid these professionals are.

Although if he has been promised the move of his lifetime and then they've moved the goalposts or broken a promise, you could understand his frustration. Not that it's necessarily the best way to go about it. Then again, if it means we end up getting a good player, I'm not too arsed. We have suffered from our own players agitating for a move enough times. I could live with us being the Billy Big Bollocks club that unsettles players, for a change.

Why is he following Paul Lambert?
