Aston Villa supporters on Twitter have provided a mixed reaction to reports that one of their targets Marvelous Nakamba has opted to go on strike in order to engineer a move to the Premier League club. 

French outlet Le Soir have claimed that midfielder Nakamba has been left angry at Club Brugge seemingly rejecting a £10 million bid for his services from Villa. 


It is fair to say that the Villa supporters didn't know what to make of Nakamba's actions, as he is seemingly adamant on moving to the Midlands outfit this summer.

Nakamba recently competed in the Africa Cup of Nations for his home country of Zimbabwe as he would have no doubt been given an extended holiday when his team were knocked out. 

Villa are yet to sign a central midfielder this summer and a player like Nakamba would help add more depth in Dean Smith's squad this summer.

The newly-promoted side have been pretty busy during this summer transfer window, and have done very well in bringing in as many players before pre-season really kicks off. 

It remains to be seen whether Nakamba will be one of Villa's captures before the window closes at the start of August, as Smith will no doubt add another midfielder to his ranks. 

Nonetheless, some Villa fans were critical of Nakamba's actons because they feel he could act the same if he ever wanted to leave the club in the near future.
