Dutch Bound Ntuli With Bucs First Team

Orlando Pirates development product Nhlakanipho Ntuli has been allowed to train with the club’s first team as he prepares to make a return to Europe for further advancement in his career.   

Ntuli is on the verge of concluding a big move to FC Twente in the Netherlands, after leaving a lasting impression during his trials with the side in 2012. A source in the know confirmed with the Siya crew that Ntuli is part of the Bucs first team training under coach Roger de Sa and his technical team.

 

“The player is training with the first team of Orlando Pirates. He started on Monday and even played for the team in the (Gauteng) Reserve League against SuperSport United. He scored the second goal as Pirates drew the game 2-2,” said the source.

 

It was previously reported by Soccer-Laduma that Pirates have entered into a programme that will see the youngster co-developed by both the PSL defending champions and the Dutch side, until he turns 18, whereafter he will be able to sign for the Eredivisie club.

 

Ntuli is expected to remain with Pirates until the end of the month and set to leave for Holland in February. The KZN-born player, who will be turning 17 in February, is expected to sign a long-term contract with the Eredivisie side when he turns 18, in 2014.
