Maritzburg Join Race For Chiefs/Pirates Target?

Bidvest Wits have recently exercised their one-year option on their returning loanee in midfielder Phumlani Ntshangase – but that hasn’t stopped his name being discussed by potential suitors.  

The Siya crew reported early last month that 24-year-old, who spent a season on loan at SuperSport United and played 20 games, has been the subject of interest from both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

SuperSport were also keen on making his loan spell a permanent one, but it appears Wits’ asking price – believed to be R3-million – was simply too much for Matsatsantsa to retain his services.

The utility player has since returned to Braamfontein, but Siya sources have indicated that Maritzburg United have now entered the race.

Eric Tinkler’s side are fresh from winning the relegation/promotion play-offs and are now eager to bolster their team given they are set to lose midfielder Fortune Makaringe to Pirates and quite possibly Siphesihle Ndlovu to the Buccaneers, too. The Team of Choice would have to negotiate the asking price if they are to land Ntshangase’s signature from Wits.   

While the imminent arrival of Makaringe at Pirates has put brakes on their pursuit of Ntshangase, there has been no indication as yet that Chiefs are completely out of the race. The Siya crew will monitor the situation closely.
