Bucs In Negotiations With Kangwa

Orlando Pirates are in negotiations to sign Zambian striker, Evans Kangwa. The 19-year-old is highly rated in Zambia, and is contracted to Nkana FC in the Zambia Premier League.

The youngster’s career flourished in 2011, after he netted seven goals for the Zambia U20 side at the Cosafa Youth Championships.

Kangwa finished the tournament in Botswana as the top goal scorer, and was named the Player of the Tournament.

The talented player has been a target for Bucs since 2012. He had trials with Spanish second division outfit, Recreativo Huelva last year.

In October last year, Kangwa had a trial at Wits although the player was never going to be signed at the time. The Braamfontein outfit had exhausted their foreign quota for the season.

“Orlando Pirates is very close to finishing a deal with Evans Kangwa. The club is negotiating a deal with the player and his club from Zambia, Nkana FC. Negotiations are at an advanced stage. The boy will be sent to South Africa to sign once the two clubs have reached an agreement. He is currently in Zambia,” a source in Zambia told the Siya crew.

Kangwa was part of the Zambia squad that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2012.

He could replace his countryman Collins Mbesuma at Parktown, as the Zambian looks set to kiss his Pirates career goodbye.
