The Siya crew reported recently that the Buccaneers had made a formal approach to the Urban Warriors regarding both players, and it has now been revealed that they are now both on the verge of a move to Gauteng.

A statement read:

"Orlando Pirates Football Club is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with Ajax Cape Town for the services of Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien.

"The Club has since been granted permission to finalise personal terms with both players."

Meanwhile, the club's chairman, Irvin Khoza explained that they will only be able to finalise terms with Mobara after he returns from international duty. He told the club's official website, “I am pleased to announce the successful negotiations between ourselves and Ajax Cape Town over the services of Mobara and Norodien. We have been given the go-ahead to make contact with both players and finalise personal terms.

"Obviously, with someone like Mobara currently in Namibia with the South African national team, we will only be able to finalise with him and his representatives when he returns from international duty. However, we will be finalising soon with Norodien.”

It remains to be seen how much Pirates will be paying for the Ajax duo, or whether there will be a swap involved, although they do have long-term contracts with Ajax and will therefore not be allowed to go cheaply.
