Last night Orlando Pirates confirmed that they had signed Abbubaker Mobara from Ajax Cape Town after agreeing terms, though didn’t say for how long.
The Mobara saga has been going on for around a week now after Pirates’ announcement that they had agreed to sign the 22-year-old, only for Ajax to release a statement saying that he wanted to join Mamelodi Sundowns instead.
However, after talks went on behind the scenes, an agreement was reached with Pirates, with the South African youth international agreeing to join the Buccaneers ahead of the 2016/17 season.
The Siya crew has since been informed that the versatile defender has signed a long-term three-year deal with Muhsin Ertugral’s side, and he will join up with the club for preseason on his return from Japan this week.

Meanwhile, Pirates are also close to completing the signing of Mobara’s teammate, Riyaad Norodien, as they go big in the transfer market as part of their 80th anniversary.
