MARVELOUS NAKAMBA is yet to sign for English Premiership side Aston Villa, as he continues to undergo rigorous medical tests and resolve issues related to his personal terms, but his first name is making waves in the Sky Sports studios.

Yesterday, Sky Sports reported the Warriors midfielder was set to undergo medicals at the Birmingham club and described it as "marvellous news."

And, the channel's anchors - Hayley McQueen and Vicky Gomersall - had a field day in the studio after being charmed by his name.

"Now, to a marvellous signing, quite literally," said McQueen.

"Marvelous Nakamba has arrived at Aston Villa for a medical. "Villa agreed a deal worth £11 million with Club Brugge for the midfielder last week.

"As well as the medical, personal terms and a work permit still need to be agreed. Nakamba has refused to train with the Belgian side after Villa's first bid was turned down last month.

"If the deal goes through, he will become Villa's 11th signing since promotion from the Championship."

Her co-presenter, Gomersall, was also charmed by Nakamba's first name. "It's really good to have the name Marvelous . . . that's why I was never called Marvelous."
