Chippa Join Pirates In A Race For Sundowns Defender?
Chippa United Have Joined Orlando Pirates In A Race For Thabo Nthethe's Signature
Chippa United are believed to have entered the race with Orlando Pirates for a Mamelodi Sundowns defender.
It was reported last week by the Siya crew that Pirates are showing a keen interest in Sundowns’ Thabo Nthethe, with sources indicating that the player is believed to be keen on the move away from the Chlrookop-based club.
It has since been revealed to the crew that Pirates seem to be dragging their feet to continue their pursuit of the player and subsequently Chippa have joined in the race to land the player’s signature.
As previously revealed, it’s becoming more and more unlikely that Masandawana will be extending the stay of 33-year-old, as his contract with the Brazilians is set to come to an end this year, on June 30.
Now, there seems to be competition to land the player’s services and it remains to be seen whether Pirates will up their game to secure Nthethe’s signature, or if Chippa will end up edging the Buccaneers before the window closes shut on January 31.
