After a year since seeing his overseas deal fall through, a former Orlando Pirates youngster has received another opportunity to further his career abroad.
Last year, Siyanda Ngubo signed for Al-Qaisumah Football Club in Saudi Arabia, as reported by the Siya crew, although he had to return shortly after, due to Covid-19 and its disruptions.
The 24-year-old player’s representative Wellington Machaba of G & Q Management Sports Agency has confirmed that the striker has signed a one-year deal with Alsinaat Al Kahrabaiya in Iraq.
“Siyanda Ngubo has signed with a new club abroad. He has signed a good deal in Iraq. It wasn’t easy but that is good deal for my boy. He has been out for some time, and I am happy for him that things are shaping up for him. Last year, he signed with Al-Qaisumah Football Club in Saudi Arabia, but Covid-19 and its disruptions made it impossible for him to play there and he had to come back,” said Machaba.
“The name of his new club is Alsinaat Al Kahrabaiya and he has signed a one-year deal. The club plays in the First Division in Iraq. I am happy with the latest developments and I am happy that my boy has gone back overseas to pursue his career,” confirmed the representative.
