Nyatama, who was crowned Pirates’ Player of the Season award in his first season during the 2017/18 campaign, has featured 10 times for Highlands in all competitions since joining in January.

Contacted for comment, Highlands’ Co-Director Sinki Mnisi told the Siya crew that the club has not had any discussions with the player. 

“We haven’t spoken to Musa, or any player for that matter. We don’t know when the season ends and we have not even been told when we will be playing again. So once we know that, we will talk about contracts,” Mnisi said.
