Cape Town City boss John Comitis has spoken about a failed overseas move for midfielder Thabo Nodada.
It was recently revealed by Siya sources close to the Citizens that Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have had their offers for Nodada falling short of the Mother City club’s evaluation of the player as interest in the Bafana Bafana international continues to grow.
Recent reports in the media have been that the talented player could be on his way to the Buccaneers during this July/August transfer window, while Chiefs are known to have been the 26-year-old Ixopo-born player’s admirers for some time.
While other reports also emerged at the end of the 2020/21 season that AmaZulu had entered into the race for Nodada’s signature, City have in the past said that they have prioritised selling the player overseas, although they would be open to a local move if it meets the requirements of their evaluation of the player.
Speaking to the media this week, Comitis confirmed that he has had an offer from Turkey discussed for Nodada, though the move has now fallen through after the player picked an injury.
“I had a deal on the table yesterday (Wednesday) from Turkey for Thabo. We were discussing a loan with an option, and I got a call from the medical this morning, he (Nodada) had an MRI scan and he’s out for four weeks with his hamstring, unfortunate,” said Comitis, speaking to the media.
