BUCS: Agent issues huge update on the futures of Ndah and Ofori

Orlando Pirates targeting two more centre backs

25-year-old Nigerian defender Olisa Ndah is a key player, but turned out just 17 times for the club this term for various reasons. Ndah joined the Buccaneers back in 2021 and has attracted interest from clubs abroad, notably in Italy and Sweden. He has reportedly tried to force his way out of the Soweto club but his agent has now confirmed he’ll be staying at Mayfair as he nurses a knee injury.

That hasn’t stopped the Buccaneers scouts from casting their net around Mzansi for talent. According to the rumour mill, they’ve got their eyes on Sicelo Hlatshwayo and Pogiso Sanoka. Both are highly experienced operators.
