Aston Villa have agreed a deal worth more than £11m for Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous Nakamba, Sky Sports News understands.  

Nakamba had been refusing to train with the Belgian side after Villa's first bid was turned down last month.

The Zimbabwe international is set to become Villa's second signing of the summer from the Belgian side, with Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes already having arrived at Villa Park in a deal worth in excess of £20m.

The newly promoted Premier League side have been extremely active in the transfer market, with their signing of Egypt international Trezeguet earlier this week their ninth acquisition of the window.

Nakamba joined Club Brugge from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2017 and helped his side to the Belgian title in his first season.
