Pirates Want SSU Attacker, No Talks Yet
Dove Wome Is Wanted By Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates want to sign Dove Wome from SuperSport United on a permanent basis, but will only open up talks once the Nedbank Cup final is over and done.
Wome impressed at Pirates following his loan move back in January, scoring four goals in 10 starts for the club under both Augusto Palacios and Kjell Jonevret and the Siya crew has previously reported that the Buccaneers were happy with his performance.
Now, with the two clubs preparing to meet in Durban this weekend, the crew spoke to SuperSport’s CEO, Stan Matthews, who confirmed Pirates’ interest, but also explained that things were being put on ice for the time being.
Matthews said, “Yes, we know that Pirates want to sign Dove from us. But both clubs have agreed that we will only sit down to talk about it after the Nedbank Cup final.”
The Togolese forward played a total of 13 games for Pirates in all competitions during his loan spell and he will no doubt be hoping to put in a performance against his mother club at Moses Mabhida Stadium this weekend when he turns out for his current employers.
The Nedbank Cup final takes place this Saturday, June 24 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
