Now sources close to the Soweto giants have further revealed that the versatile midfielder Mobara could be another name thrown into the mix as Pirates attempt to lure the defender into their ranks.

“Mobara is a quality player and he could be a great addition to Wits. Pirates could use him to try and bring Thulani over as he is still young and both are quality players, so a deal of this nature would make more sense,” said the source.

“His greatest asset is that he can play throughout the midfield both in offensive and defensive positions and in traditional defensive positions as well,” added the source.
