Good find about the Belgian passport, RCF. Normally Transfermarkt lets you know if they have dual nationality but only lists him as Tanzanian.

Hopefully we will have a striker for Brighton or Watford at the very latest.

BBC: "The 27-year-old Tanzania international requires a work permit so he will not be available in time for Villa's visit to Brighton on Saturday." Now we know the BBC are lying bastards but even a broken clock..

Just because he's illegible for a Belgian passport doesn't mean to say he has one.

Ive always regarded Belgium as a bit of a strange country , ie not French , not Dutch but something in between. Our scouting team seem to share my morbid fascination.

Only time Ive ever been to Belgium was the Anderlecht semi back in 81/82

I dont think we endeared ourselves to them much that day

Both the player and his agent would be certifiable if he was eligible and didn't get one. I'm aware that it's very possible that this is indeed the case.

Looks like he can play off the shoulder, with good movement and no small amount of pace. That's limited to a YouTube video, although his header in the Champions League against Liverpool was a corker.

A work permit looks complicated for him. You'd hope the powers that be have done their homework and factored this in?

It doesn't look any more or less complicated than Marvelous' work permit. It'll just be time consuming.

Anyway....

It was around 10 days for Nkamba wasn't it? Hopefully we can pick up the second forward we're after in the meantime for the Watford game.

Anyone know why he's half the price of Wesley despite a better goal record?  Age or out of contract soon?

Obviously deemed to have less "potential" in future, or we'd have signed him over Wes in summer.
