Bucs Still Keen On Target, Celtic Reluctant

Orlando Pirates Still Chasing Bloemfontein Celtic Midfielder

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 05, 2017 06:48 PM

Orlando Pirates is still keen on landing Musa Nyatama in this transfer window, however, the player’s current employers at Bloemfontein Celtic are reluctant to part ways with the player.

The Siya crew reported two weeks ago that Pirates have added Nyatama to their list of potential targets. Having completed the signing of Thamsanqa Sangweni from Chippa United, the Buccaneers are keen on adding another central midfielder to the squad for the 2017/18 season and according to sources, the signature of Nyatama is next on the club's list. 

“There is interest. But the player has another year on his contract (with Celtic). Celtic is reluctant to sell the player to Pirates,” said the source.

Nyatama had an impressive game against Bucs in their league match towards the end of the season. The 29-year-old was unlucky not to have scored a goal in that match, as his shot came off the upright with the goalkeeper, Jackson Mabokgwane, already beaten. 

Nyatama has been a transfer target for Bucs for a long time. In 2013, when the Benoni-born player was still on the books of Mamelodi Sundowns, the Soweto giants were reportedly keen to sign him.

Nyatama is what we need. We dont have a player who can unlock defences. Remember how we struggled against teams like Polokwane, baroka, Ajax, Bloem Celtics, Supersport (worse). Mr Khoza ngiyakuthemba, u r going to make us happy. Sarr, Wome, Gabuza, Gcaba, Nyauza must go

Nyatama is good player but age is not on his side...rather buy a younger player to get more mileage from than get a player who has so much mileage that one injury will be enough to end his career. Pirates must stop buying players just because the Chairman has loved them becuase that clouds his judgement and he ends up missusing resources and buying players that wont have longevity in the team...we need mainstays. We need people like Jali, Bantu Mzwakali, Rusike, Mahlasela, Phalane, Motswari, Ntsangase from Black Leopards, Sipho Sgobe Moeti.

Rodents can buy all the PSL players but as for as long as they have Jonevret, Makola, Manyisa, Rakhale and Matlaba they will remain useless and heading straight to NFD.

Grazing Rats dont learn mara, they want to start building a team from scratch like previous seasons? This time I foresee playoffs if not automatic relegation.

Zombies want everything that breath. 16-2 score of 3 games last season is to be blamed here.
