The Zimbabwe international is due for a medical at Villa on Thursday after both the clubs reached an agreement for the central midfielder.
If the move goes through, Nakamba would become the 10th signing of the club this summer, and it will take Villa’s summer spending to over the £100 million mark.
Some Villa fans have taken to Twitter to express their reactions. Here are some of the selected tweets:
Can’t believe it’s actually happening!

Nakamba becomes the second major signing from the Belgian club this summer after Villa signed Wesley Moraes in a deal worth in excess of £20m earlier this summer.
The midfielder had been refusing to train with the Belgian side after the club knocked back Villa’s opening bid last month.
