Orlando Pirates appear to be back in the race for Mamelodi Sundowns’ want-away striker, Nyasha Mushekwi.
Last week the Siya crew revealed that the Zimbabwean has not been training with the Downs squad and is looking to hold out and see his contract expire with the Brazilians.
The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to the Buccaneers since 2013 and with the striker in the final year of his contract at Chloorkop, it appears as though Pirates have reignited their interest in him.
Mushekwi has also been linked with a move abroad, however the latest news reaching the Siya crew has indicated that Bucs could make a swoop for the player as soon as January as he wants to leave Sundowns as soon as possible.
“The team (Bucs) has been interested in Nyasha for a long time and in the past they have been frustrated by their counterpart’s wish not to sell the player to any local club. He will soon be out of contract and Sundowns could lose him for free,” the source said.
“Pirates are ready to step in and bring him to the club if the opportunity comes their way. They still believe in him and if he is not training with Sundowns, that means he also wants to move so things could be easier for Pirates this time around.”
Do you think that Sundowns will let Mushekwi join another PSL side? Would you like to see him become a Buccaneer?
