Many football fans across the world have been sharing their appreciation for Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba on social media.

How well do you know Villa’s transfer business on strikers? First up, how much did Darren Bent cost in 2011? *Fees from Transfermarkt*

The 27-year-old made the gesture through his eponymous foundation, which was launched in 2019, with his goal to reach 100,000 pupils’ fees paid by the end of the year. Nakamba is also hoping to hit one million in four years’ time, and it’s safe to say that his charitable gesture has drawn a glowing response on social media.

The midfielder is on £34,000 per week at Villa Park and has made 13 appearances in all competitions during the current campaign.
